Falsely accused Sexual Harrassment

I enjoyed read your website. I am in Texas and have found so much about
Sexual Harassment but little or nothing
about what happen or what case law is about those innocent-falsely accused it is as if it is a hidden matter. That like the old days when there was jim Crow and we acted like it did not happen.

False accusations of sexual harassment can create a claim.

Before I respond to your inquiry, I must state that we have not spoken, I have not reviewed the relevant documents and facts, and I do not represent you. Therefore, my discussion below is not a legal opinion, but is informational only. Finally, my discussion applies only to issues to which Pennsylvania or Federal law apply, unless otherwise specified.

That being said, false accusations of sexual harassment can create a claim. If you have been falsely accused, and have suffered damage from the accusation (i.e. being fired), then you may have a claim against the accuser who defamed you, and against your employer if the employer failed to investigate with the appropriate standard of care. The standard may vary from state to state, depending on the claim.

If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact me at the below address(es) or number.
