Retaliation in the Workplace

Sexual harassment can occur in the workplace under a number of scenarios, and it is not always severe or frequent enough to warrant pursuing a lawsuit However, if an employee feels bothered or uncomfortable in any way, they should take action and file a complaint about the situation. Even if the underlying sexual harassment is not severe, there may be retaliation from your employer. In many situations, a case of retaliation is even more damaging than a harassment case. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for reporting these incidents. For example, you cannot be demoted, refused a promotion, have your hours reduced or fired because you reported sexual harassment.

What Steps Should I Take if I Believe I am Being Sexually Harassed?

If you believe that you are being sexually harassed in the workplace, whether you are female or male, we encourage you to follow your employer’s policy for reporting such behavior.
