Filing a complaint regarding sexual harassment can be difficult for a victim. People who haven’t ever been through this type of situation might not realize the emotional toll that it takes on the victim. This is one of the reasons why some victims of sexual harassment might not make complaints right away.
We understand that you might be traumatized by what happened. In fact, you might need to seek out medical and mental health care so that you can start to heal from the incident. We are here to lend an open ear when you can discuss what happened. Once we have that information, we can let you know what options you have to proceed with your case.
Every employer should have information up and policies in place about what you should do if you are sexually harassed. There should be a contact person listed on the posted information. You should speak to this person if you feel comfortable doing so. However, it is also possible for you to speak to another person in authority about the incident.
We understand that you might not know your rights in these cases. One that is especially important is that you have the right to a harassment-free workplace. This doesn’t mean that the employer has to worry about only employees. They also have a duty to prevent vendors and customers from harassing employees.
We are here to help you assert your rights in these cases. From filing an initial complaint through taking more serious legal action, we will stand by your side to help you ensure you don’t have to deal with this type of atrocious behavior again.
