Jury Awards Alabama Sexual Harassment Victims $1.4 Million in Lawsuit

Jury Awards Alabama Sexual Harassment Victims $1.4 Million in Lawsuit

The Alabama Sexual Harassment Lawyers with Norris Injury Lawyers explain that workers have the right to feel safe and secure from unwanted sexual advances. The failure to protect this right could result in the company and the employee responsible for the violations being held liable for damages.

A recent case in Alabama resulted in three women receiving an award of more than $1 million. According to an article from Al.com, the suit alleges that the Special Assistant to the President and Director of Marketing and Communications at Alabama State University and his next in command repeatedly subjected the women to sexual harassment and racial discrimination. Reports indicate racial slurs were commonplace in the office and the women state they were also the victims of unwanted touching and sexual references.

The women accused the university of failing to address complaints against their superiors and retaliating firing them after they reported the incidents to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A jury agreed and awarded the women $739,500 for pain and suffering the abuse caused and another $660,500 for lost wages and benefits.

Norris Injury Lawyers’ team of Alabama Personal Injury Lawyers is hopeful the decision that was reached in the case will help bring a sense of closure for the three victims.
