Sexual Harassment at Work

The workplace is meant for work. Employees have the right to work at their jobs without being subjected to sexually harassing behavior. While most sexual harassment claims are filed by women, men can also be the object of sexual harassment. Regardless of gender, no employee should be subjected to an uncomfortable workplace.

If you find yourself the object of unwanted comments, or touching, you should not put up with the behavior. Whether it is your manager or a colleague, a skilled sexual harassment defense lawyer can help you put an end to the offensive behavior.

Some  include:

  • Degrading comments
  • Humorous comments of a sexual nature
  • Comments made directly to you or to a colleague
  • Emails of a sexual nature
  • Instant messages of a sexual nature
  • Pressuring for dates
  • Inappropriate touching
  • Display of sexual material

Even if you are not the target, you have a right to a workplace free of sexual innuendo and harassment. You also are protected from retaliation by your employer for complaining about the uncomfortable situation or for participating in an investigation into the situation.

The first thing you should do is to complain to your manager, supervisor, or your Human Resources Department. If the activity does not stop immediately, seek out the advice and counsel of an experienced sexual harassment attorney. Nobody should have to deal with a hostile work environment, or have their careers affected by inappropriate behavior in the workplace.
