I feel i work in a place where sexual comment are everywhere and where two very pretty young girls are treated diflferently. The rest of us have to listen about our "admin assistnat has perky tits" and another girl had to be promoted because "she's gonna look good in a swimsuit." Depite the fact the whole rest of the department had repeately told him they didn't want her.Now I fee my job is in jeaprody, and I was wondering if it was possible to have a lawyer simply retained in case this happens?

Yes, people often retain lawyers in advance if they think there may be a legal problem on the horizon.What you described sounds like a hostile work environment based on sex and possibly age discrimination.http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/publications/fs-sex.cfmstates:"Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual Harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment."You can get a free consultation from some of the discrimination attorneys listed by location athttp://lawyers.findlaw.com/lawyer/practicestate/Discrimination/ColoradoI hope this information is helpful.
Thank you for accepting my answer.
