Scenario:

You are a lawyer working at WE WIN Law Firm. A possible new client comes to see you seeking your legal advice. She is a young black female who is an associate at a large law firm. The firm has a policy against sexual harassment that indicates employees should report sexual harassment and will be protected if they do so. Your client has experienced harassment in several forms. Partners regularly pressure young female associates to go on “retreats” at one of the partner’s cabins in the woods; these trips clearly have no business purpose. Your client doesn’t actual know what goes on there as she has never accepted an invitation to go. One partner has repeatedly told her she’s the prettiest associate the firm has and she must workout because she looks so good in her clothes. She asked after that not to work for that partner and she was moved. One senior associate constantly made inappropriate comments, including asking when she was going to get married and have babies, until she reported him under the firm’s policy. Although the firm is allegedly attempting to resolve the complaint, other partners criticized her for complaing only because she had handled a case poorly. What legal advice would you give her and why? Does she have a good case? What causes of action does she have?
