One Sexual Harassment Law Suit Can Devastate Even the Largest Employer
Consider the following:
- During the past five years, the number of sexual harassment complaints filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission doubled;
- The average, large corporation spends approximately $6.7 million for each sexual harassment suit (Texas Bar Journal, Nov., 1997);
- The average court verdict for a sexual harassment plaintiff is $350,000. This does not include defense costs or intangible costs the employer incurs as a result of bad publicity and diminished productivity.
- The average cost an employer faces to defend a sexual harassment suit is $150,000 per plaintiff.
