Reporting Sexual Harassment Might Not Be Enough
Feeling uncomfortable at work can have a direct impact on not only your performance but also your quality of life. When you are continually fending off remarks and advances, work can become a hostile environment. But you do not have to tolerate a supervisor or colleague who oversteps boundaries.
If you are the victim of workplace sexual harassment and reporting the offenses led nowhere, reach out to our firm at once. At Batey Law Firm, PLLC, we can assess your claim and help you determine how you can best navigate the situation.
You May Need To Involve An Attorney
Instances of sexual harassment at work may not always be overt. But regardless of how apparent the offender’s behavior is, you should always file a report.
Let your employer know at once if:
- A superior solicits you for sex in exchange for a promotion
- A superior requests sex in exchange for not firing you
- A manager or coworker makes unwanted advances toward you
- A manager or coworker touches you inappropriately
- A manager or coworker persists with sexual innuendos or threats
Should your employer choose not to act in your interest, take legal actions. Because sexual harassment cases can be difficult to prove in court, it is crucial that you work with an aggressive employment law lawyer from the beginning.
We Can Help You Speak Up For Yourself
Often, employees who face sexual discrimination will remain quiet out of fear of losing a job they love. However, under state and federal laws, your employer may not retaliate against you for filing a complaint. Rather than staying silent and enduring improper conduct from a boss or your peers, fight back.
