Sexual Harassment & Hostile Work Environments
Sexual harassment is very serious and can be detrimental to one’s emotional and psychological health. It is classified as unwarranted or wanted sexual touching, requests, innuendos, rumors and comments. These comments can make people very uncomfortable and may even lead to hesitation when debating a report. If you have been sexually harassed, it is important that the correct procedure is following when filing a complaint. For example, an official complaint must be filed to your human resources officer first, before a suit can be filed. The company must know in advance that an employee is dealing with an uncomfortable situation. An employment law attorney can provide you with compassionate legal representation if you believe you have been sexually harassed in your workplace.
