In today’s world, employees can’t be too careful when it comes to combating sexual harassment. It seems like there is always news of some type of sexual abuse or harassment scandal. Many people are standing up to let these alleged harassers know that behavior like that is unacceptable. More importantly, the question should be what employers are doing to prevent this time of atrocious behavior.
Employees have the right to work in spaces that are free of harassment in all forms. Sexual harassment, be it inappropriately crude comments or physical touches, isn’t ever suitable. If you are a victim of sexual harassment, you need to take action right away. Doing so can help you end the harassment. This strategy is only effective when your employer is willing to take action, too.
All employers should have clear policies that prevent sexual harassment. The penalties for this type of behavior should be clear. When you make a complaint of sexual harassment, your harasser shouldn’t be allowed to continue the behavior. We can help you to take action that might put an end to the sexual harassment.
Being harassed isn’t at all pleasant. Ideally, your harasser will be moved to another shift, location or job where there isn’t no contact with you. Once you make the complaint, there isn’t any reason why you should still have to deal with your harasser.
