Sexual harassment can be devastating to your financial security and mental and physical health. You don’t have to put up with it!
Sexual harassment takes many forms. It can be anything from dirty talk, inappropriate e-mails or texts to uninvited physical touching. It can be offering a job promotion in exchange for sexual favors, to writing up, demoting and even firing the employee for not giving in.
Retaliation for refusing sexual advances, or as a result of complaining about the harassment, is also actionable. If sexual harassment is proven against your supervisor or certain other officers, directors, manager or agents of the company, the company is liable for their actions, even if the company did not know about the sexual harassment. If an equal level co-worker sexually harasses you and the company learns about it and if the sexual harassment continues then the employer will also be liable to you. The sexual harasser, as an individual, is responsible even if the company was not aware of the sexual harassment.
You can usually count on the sexual harasser and employer to deny it, and have the company support them, so it is a good idea to secure and save any type of evidence that would show inappropriate behavior as well as outside phone numbers and addresses of any witnesses. Employers should be advised of the sexual harassment, and the offensive details should be given. You are urged to speak with us at all times so that we can help get it stopped.
