BOSTON (WBZ-AM) – The flood of accusations regarding sexual harassment in the workplace is not limited to high-profile sectors like entertainment, the media and government.
More and more women in Boston are saying "Me Too” according to a prominent Boston employment lawyer Philip Gordon, Managing Partner of Gordon Law Group.
He says he's seen a huge uptick in claims of sexual harassment in the workplace, amidst the high-profile cases coming out of Washington and Hollywood.
“The number of calls we’ve received in sexual harassment has probably tripled or quadrupled. We already have a good reputation in the business or in the industry if you will for folks who are known to fight on behalf of employees or individuals.” He said.
Gordon tells WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kendall Buhl that the calls his firm are receiving are from women executive who have put up with sexual harassment for most of their careers.
