Sexual Harassment In Your Workplace Is Never Okay
Some may think it’s all in fun, it relieves workplace stress or that you’re taking it too seriously. You know the truth. Sexual harassment or assault has made your life a nightmare. The time for suffering in silence is over, and The Litigation Boutique LLC wants to help you speak up for your rights.
Men and women can be victims or perpetrators of this violation. Sexual misconduct at work can take many forms, but it generally falls under two categories:
- Quid pro quo: Someone with authority over you threatens to fire you or promises job benefits in exchange for tolerating sexual advances. Only one instance of quid pro quo is necessary to qualify as sexual harassment.
- Hostile work environment: Someone in your workplace creates a pervasively uncomfortable environment using sexual words or actions. This may include offensive jokes, unwelcome touching, blocking you from leaving a room or other sexually charged behaviors that intimidate or offend you.
You don’t have to tolerate this, and the law protects you. However, proving someone is harassing you at work is not always easy.
Draw The Line In The Sand
If you have made it clear to your offender that you want the behavior to stop, and human resources has done nothing to intercede for you, our law firm is ready to be your ally. We have experience on both sides of sexual harassment complaints, so we can guide you in the most effective way to prepare your case to achieve a positive resolution.
It is not uncommon for victims of sexual harassment to suffer forms of retaliation for reporting the inappropriate behavior. If you have lost your job, been demoted or suffered mistreatment since you reported sexual harassment, you may have cause to alert the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. We can help you with this process.
