Sexual Harassment Archives

Employee sues state agency after termination

Most people employed in Missouri know that there are very clear laws defining what may be identified as sexual harassment and what is allowed or not allowed in the workplace. Employers in both the private and the public sector should work to create environments safe from such behavior. They should also make employees feel safe about reporting suspected sexual harassment. Unfortunately this may not always actually happen.

Holding your employer accountable for harassment

Being harassed by your supervisor can leave you feeling helpless given his or her position. That sense of helplessness can be even further compounded by feelings of isolation if you report what is happening to your employer in Kansas City, yet little to no action is taken to stop it. Many that we here at Thornberry Brown, LLC have worked with in the past have experienced the same feelings. They often presented the same question that you likely have: Can your employer be held liable in this scenario? 

What is considered sexual harassment?

Workers in Missouri like you deserve to go to your job without any fear of being discriminated against or harassed. Fortunately, there are laws in place that are meant to protect you from these serious workplace problems. At Thornberry Brown, LLC, we work with the law to help you combat any workplace discrimination you might face.

Men also victims of sexual harassment in the workplace

While most people think of women as the victims of sexual harassment in the workplace, they are not the only ones who are targets. Men are also recipients of unwanted sexual comments, gestures and suggestions made by their female co-workers or bosses. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the law prohibits people from requesting sexual favors, making unwelcome sexual advances or using profound language toward another person in the workplace.
