Harassment is in many cases the product of broader workplace cultures that permit a variety of forms of unlawful behavior to persist. As such, workers facing harassment often have potentially actionable claims involving other forms of discrimination, e.g., gender, national origin, pay, etc., as well as a higher risk of experiencing retaliation. Our panelists review the considerations that come into play when deciding whether and how to bring a case with multiple, intersecting causes of action. These include understanding the different substantive liability standards that may apply, acquiring and deploying evidence that may bear on multiple claims, and knowing when it might be in the client’s best interest to either not pursue or jettison certain claims.
