Experienced St. Paul Sexual Harassment Lawyers
For more than 35 years, the attorneys at the St. Paul Law Office of Sivertson and Barrette, P.A., have been protecting the rights of Minnesotans in the workplace and have handled some of the first sexual harassment cases reported in our state.
In the mid-1980s, our firm represented a Ramsey County court reporter who had been sexually harassed by the judge for whom he worked. This case was the first of its kind in the state. The firm won a $375,000 verdict for the employee, breaking ground both in sexual harassment law and pioneering new territory with respect to workplace rights. In fact, our early success resulted in the implementation of one of the first government policies in Minnesota prohibiting sexual harassment in the workplace.
