Sexual Harassment

To be clear, sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination. Sexual harassment isn’t about sex – it’s about power. Harassers behave the way they do because they feel threatened. They are threatened by smart women, strong women, gender non-conforming workers, gay people, or anything else that makes them face up to their inadequacies.

We are proud to fight sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace (whether yours or his).

Hey all you folks out there needing a great and reliable lawyer. Please keep Susan Crumiller in your files. She was fantastic and really fought the fight to the end and we won. So keep Susan in mind when you need a great, smart lawyer. Thanks Susan…

She’s really smart, well-spoken, and knowledgeable… and good at explaining in simple terms all the legal concepts and processes. She was always accessible and promptly replied to our endless questions, concerns and problems… which is quite a feat considering that there were so many of us. She’s also very personable and understands the human element

Ms. Crumiller is a highly dependable attorney. Once I had retained Ms. Crumiller as my attorney, I felt confident that she would handle my case to obtain the best possible outcome.

After consulting several attorneys, Susan seemed like the best choice for my situation. Her services exceeded my expectations, as she was knowledgeable and always responsive to my questions throughout the entire process. Ultimately, Susan helped us reach a settlement that was beyond what we thought we would be able to receive, given our dire circumstances.

I highly recommend Crumiller P.C., even if just for a consultation to make sure you’ve got the right information! Susan is no-nonsense, and won’t waste your time (or hers) just to make a buck. Plus, she’s a mom of two young kids and is a true advocate for women in the workplace.

Firm Successes

Hostile Work Environment

We secured substantial monetary compensation for our client who had been subject to a hostile work environment, including gender-based slurs and lewd activity.

Pattern of Workplace Sexual Harassment

Our client came to us after her boss sexually assaulted her.  Quietly and discretely, we were able to support our client in identifying other women who he had harassed, uncovering a serious pattern of abuse targeting a vulnerable population.  Through litigation, we secured a substantial six-figure recovery for our clients, one of whom said she could finally sleep soundly for the first time in years.  Even better, inside sources say that the behavior has stopped.

Threatened in the Workplace

Our client had secured a new job after being forced out by homophobic threats and slurs.  However, the harassment continued when his employer tried to enforce a questionable “non-compete” clause, jeopardizing his new position.  We shut that baloney down swiftly and our client was able to move on in peace.

Ongoing Sexually Inappropriate Behavior

Our client was suffering worse and worse mental health effects as a result of her supervisor’s ongoing sexually inappropriate behavior.  We immediately reached out to the employer and discretely secured a period of paid leave while we negotiated on our client’s behalf.  Ultimately we secured our client a substantial enough recovery that she felt free to leave her job and she was able to take the time she needed to make new arrangements without financial insecurity or stress.
