Civil Rights

Sexual harassment is a type of discrimination that violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A civil rights attorney can help protect your personal rights by making the offender either stop his or her behavior, or repay you for any damage you have suffered. Your civil rights are spelled out in federal and state constitutions and in discrimination laws, and your civil rights attorney will investigate whether you've been discriminated against because of your gender.
