Being proactive is key in making sure every party understands their legal position in order to proceed under the guidelines of the law.
Sexual harassment is one of the most intricate issues surrounding the workplace. Although there are clear delineations on what sexual harassment is, employers frequently ignore the rules and retaliate against employees that report inappropriate behavior. Sexual harassment is covered under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and specifically makes it illegal for any employer to discriminate or retaliate under the law. Knowing what can be deemed sexual harassment is key. Here are a few examples:
- Written or verbal conduct laced with personal behavior or sexual innuendoes
- Physical conduct, whether violent or non-violent
- Nonverbal conduct, where someone make derogatory gestures of a sexual nature
- Inappropriate visual displays of drawings or e-mails.
Employees have the right to be protected from any employer encouraging sexual harassment in the workplace. We work in their defense to investigate and get to the bottom of the issue, making sure their interests are protected. In the event the employee is terminated, we work to get the compensation due to them and also work to hold the employer responsible for their actions.
