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.
