Sexual Harassment in the Workplace is Never Okay
There are many television shows and movies that portray sexual harassment as a typical part of the workplace. However, you should never be subjected to sexual harassment, whether at work, home, or on the street. If you think you may be a victim, read below to learn what your rights are and consider hiring a law firm to take on your case in court.
What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is defined as "behavior characterized by the making of unwelcome and inappropriate sexual remarks or physical advances in a workplace or other professional or social situation." If a coworker comments on your appearance in a way that makes you uncomfortable, or if your boss asks for sexual favors in return for a promotion, you have been a victim.
When Can I Hire a Law Firm?
Any time an unwanted sexual remark or advance has been made to you, you have the right to hire an attorney to represent your case in court. Even if you turned down the advance, it only happened once, or if you received no benefit from engaging in the behavior, you still have rights.
What Will a Law Firm Do For Me?
When you contact a lawyer for your sexual harassment case, they will ask for all evidence you can provide to support your claim. This may include emails, recorded phone conversations, or the names of witnesses. It is best to provide as much information as possible in order to help build a solid case.
