Know Your Rights
By law, your employer cannot take any adverse actions against you for reporting workplace sexual harassment. If you have been demoted or fired for reporting sexual harassment, talk to a lawyer at Palmer Rodak & Associates as soon as possible.
Examples of Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment can involve any unwanted behavior that is sexual in nature. Sexual harassment can produce a hostile work environment, interfering with an employee's job satisfaction and ability to do his or her job.
Sexual harassment at work can occur between a supervisor and an employee, or between employees. Both are wrong and both are illegal.
Examples of actions that can constitute workplace sexual harassment include:
- Offers of compensation or promotion in exchange for sexual favors
- Verbal sexual advances
- Sexual innuendos
- Sexually explicit jokes
- Repeated requests for dates
- Offensive name-calling
- Invasion of personal space
- Unwanted physical touching (pinching, hugging, patting, or massaging)
You should never feel embarrassed to take legal action against your employer for failing to address workplace sexual harassment. Although the situation may be uncomfortable, holding your employer responsible sends a positive message to all victims of sexual harassment. With legal action, we can hold the responsible parties accountable and protect others from these same harmful practices.
