FAQs

Q?

What is the statute of limitations for sex harassment?

A.

Generally,one year from the last bad act, unless there has been a “continuous violation” of related acts of harassment spanning over years which are closely connected and should really be considered one large, cumulative act.

Q?

What should I do if I am currently being sexually or otherwise harassed at work?

A.

First, contact us to explain your situation so that we can walk you through your options during a free telephone or email consultation. You can email us directly at the Contacts page. Second, you will also, want to get a hold of the office/company policy or manual and determine whether there is a procedure for complaints. If there is a specific procedure (e.g., calling an 800 number, contacting a specific person in writing, or notifying Human Resources), then you should follow it. If there is not a specific procedure, notify the harasser in writing (via email, mail with delivery confirmation or fax with a copy of transmission sent page) that the conduct is not welcome and also notify a supervisor and human resources, asking the conduct is immediately corrected.

Q?

How much do you charge?

A.

We do not charge for an initial email or telephone consultation or a brief initial appointment after the consultation. Most sex harassment cases are taken on contingency. For contingency cases, we charge an initial fee and then a contingency (a percentage) if we obtain a judgment, verdict or settlement in your favor. Sometimes, clients request to pay hourly, instead of on a contingency basis, but this can be a costly option depending on the duration (length of time) of the case. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like in an email or telephone call regarding our charges.

Q?

How long will my case take?

A.

Most cases generally take between 3 months to 2 years, depending on the court and county. If your case is more appropriate for federal court, we find that these cases tend to take a little longer than state court cases.

Q?

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

A.

Helpful information would be a) a short, 1-2 page typed out summary of what happened, b) contact information for all witnesses, c) evidence such as emails, photos, text messages and/or social media messages and any other evidence of harassment.

Q?

What is the “Arts” part of your law office?

A.

We use video re-enactments, day-in-the –life presentation, public protests and theater exercises to show what the Plaintiff (person suing) has alleged. We also offer holistic referrals to our clients within the Northern California area, including referrals to mental healthcare professionals, social workers and social justice professionals who may be able to provide a comprehensive attention to client concerns.
