Flirting at Work?

secret    Workplace flirting is not rewarded even in environments where it is encouraged, according to this interesting article on a recent study of law firms. On a related note, our experience in representing both the harassed and those accused of harassing, in both the federal and private sector, is that there remain a large number of managers–even at very high levels–who consider their position of power a license to sexually harass those working for them.

    Gentlemen: a good rule of thumb is that if you would not act that way at work if your mother or sister or wife were present, then you probably shouldn’t act that way in their absence either. An old standby alternative is, “How would what I’m doing look if covered on the front page of the Washington Post?”

New Client Comments Posted

Over on our “client praise” page you will see we just added these comments:

I cannot thank you enough for all your assistance over the years. You have been a godsend to me.”

and from another client:

“Your professionalism in dealing with the agency speaks louder in what it does not say directly than in what it does say. Your writing covers a very sharp filet knife designed to cut to the issue and get the result.  I also appreciate your continued calm, focused approach. You have more than earned any and all fees. I cannot imagine going through this without your guidance and support.”

As noted in the disclaimer on that page, every case is different and the outcome depends on the facts involved, but our goal is to leave every client as pleased as those quoted on the page.
