We represent several men claiming that they have been sexually harassed in the workplace by a female supervisor or by men who are harassing them based upon their sexual (or perceived sexual) orientation. Men filing sexual harassment lawsuits is a growing trend in employment law. In 2009, men filed 12,700 sexual harassment cases. The majority of sexual harassment lawsuits are still filed by women. Statistics recently produced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission show that sexual harassment claims by men have doubled from 1990 to 2009 from 8% of all sexual harassment claims to 16% in 2009.
