Sexual Harassment

Do you believe that you were sexually harassed at work?

Sexual harassment is prohibited by law: Federal and state law both prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are obligated to take affirmative steps to prevent harassment. Employers cannot retaliate against employees who make a claim of sexual harassment or other employees who try prevent sexual harassment. Sexual harassment can take the form of your employment being expressly or impliedly conditioned upon unwelcome sexual advances. It can also occur when your work environment is made intolerable by sexual misconduct.

Sexual harassment includes:

Sexual favors and sexual advances or propositions.

Verbal conduct, including epithets, slurs, and derogatory comments.

Physical conduct, including assault, impeding or blocking movement, and physical interference with work.
