Reaching A Settlement In A Sexual Harassment Case

So you are the victim of sexual harassment and have taken the first step to protecting your rights by calling an attorney. There is some back and forth and a demand letter is sent to the company in an attempt to settle the case. My Chicago office gets asked often what happens next? Usually the company will either hire an attorney or have their in-house counsel review the facts and conduct an internal investigation. This could take weeks depending on how many employees need to be interviewed and how much electronic evidence needs to be accessed, reviewed and secured.
