Victim Of Sexual Harassment?
Persistent sexual harassment in the workplace can make even a dream job morph into a nightmare. Sadly, many victims of sexual harassment feel helpless to do anything about it — especially if the perpetrator is a superior. Although most employers adopt internal policies for reporting sexual harassment, some refuse to take complaints seriously, making you feel sidelined and ignored.

Two Types Of Harassing Conduct
Sexual harassment is a form of employment discrimination. It encompasses a wide range of conduct, including:
- Quid pro quo sexual harassment — that is, express or implied pressure for sexual favors to keep your job or advance in the workplace
- Hostile work environments characterized by persistent threats, off-color jokes, offensive comments, unwanted advances, inappropriate touching and similar behaviors
In today’s diverse workforce, females are not the sole victims of sexual harassment. Males and transgender individuals can also suffer from harassment or bullying by either sex.
Protect Yourself Before It’s Too Late
The law imposes strict deadlines for bringing sexual harassment claims. Don’t jeopardize your rights by waiting too long to speak with an attorney.
