Have You Faced Sexual Abuse At Work?

Your workplace is supposed to be somewhere that you are valued for your talents and treated as a professional. Unfortunately, far too many people face the exact opposite: sexual predation from co-workers or superiors. You may know the excruciating choice all too well: Should you endure the abuse or suffer the consequences of reporting it?

No one should have to make that choice. At Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC, we will not only pursue justice on your behalf, but we will also shield you from illegal retaliation at the hands of your employer. We are keenly aware of both the personal sensitivity of these issues and the career ramifications, and we will act accordingly. For years, we have served our New Jersey clients with unswerving professionalism and absolute confidentiality. We will do the same for you.

Employers Have A Responsibility To Be Safe

The person who abused you should face criminal charges for their actions. However, employers can be held liable as well if they have deficient hiring practices or failed to act. Some of these scenarios can include:

  • Failing to conduct background checks on prospective employees
  • Taking insufficient disciplinary action after an abuse report or not acting at all
  • Blaming you or otherwise pressuring you not to come forward with your allegations
  • Bureaucratic shielding of abusers to protect the corporate brand

These actions are inappropriate and wrong. Our attorneys will meet with you to examine the exact circumstances that allowed the abuse to take place. Afterward, we will lay out your legal options and walk you through all the steps involved in each one. Our goal is always – and only – to pursue legal action that you are comfortable with.

Justice For You, Safety For Others

Our lawyers understand that many people who have faced sexual abuse are hesitant to come forward. This is why we always offer free consultations to anyone who wants one. Tell us your story – even if it was from years ago – and we will give you an outline of what your options are. We promise complete and absolute confidentiality at every step along the way.
