Harassment in the workplace is defined as unwelcome conduct based on race, sex, age, sexual orientation, religion, or various other factors. This offensive conduct may include slurs, epithets or name-calling, inappropriate jokes, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults, offensive objects or images, and obtrusion of work performance. Those who have suffered from unlawful harassment deserve justice and behaviors must be changed.
If workplace harassment has become a stipulation of your continued employment or reaches a severity that creates an intimidating or hostile work environment, we advise that you contact our employment law attorneys for assistance.
Unlawful workplace harassment can have a major impact on employees and no employee should stand for such behavior. Understanding your rights is the first step in preventing workplace harassment, so if you have endured sexual harassment, verbal abuse, or other offensive conduct, speak with an employment attorney and find a lasting resolution.
Federal and state laws protect employees from adverse workplace situations, such as sexual, physical, or verbal harassment. If you have been a victim of workplace discrimination or retaliation, you may be entitled to reinstatement, compensation, or both for your unlawful treatment and lost wages. Our knowledgeable employment attorneys are here to help you prove retaliation and find justice.
While an array of unwelcome conduct is used in the workplace, one of the most common is sexual harassment. Sexual harassment in the workplace may consist of actions such as sexual comments, sexual jokes, or unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or physical harassment of a sexual nature.
Other common behaviors that create an offensive workplace environment are offensive jokes, workplace violence, racial harassment, and age discrimination.
When workplace harassment occurs, the employer and harasser can be held liable. If a reasonable person would see the actions as harassing conduct, ensure that they are reported to your human resources department so that a state or federal complaint can be filed.
If your complaint does not resolve the hostile work environment, filing a workplace harassment lawsuit may be in your best interest. Filing with your HR department is important because proof of a state or federal complaint is necessary to proceed with a workplace harassment suit.
