  • A sexual harrment claim rests on state and federal statuesk specifically the CT Fair Employment Practices Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Ordinarily, a prequisite to pursuing such a claim is exhaustion of the administrative rememdy available to the comoplainant under the state and federal law. In short, you cannot simply file suit on such a claim. Instead, you must first file a complaint with the CT Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities and the US Equal Employment Opportinity Commission.
