What qualifies as sexual harassment in the workplace?
Sexual harassment in the workplace covers many acts. Sexual harassment is not limited to inappropriate touching or advancement. Sexual harassment can also include inappropriate jobs, written or graphic materials the denigrate an employee or group of employees, slurs, insults, and more.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) dictates what is constituted as sexual harassment in the workplace. According to the EEOC, sexual harassment is a form of discrimination that violates the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. You are considered a victim of sexual harassment if you have faced an unwelcome verbal or physical advance based on your sex which creates a hostile work environment. If you are a victim of sexual harassment and you have notified management, HR, and the other necessary parties of this conduct and nothing has changed as a result, you may have a valid claim with the assistance of our experienced attorney.
What are examples of sexual harassment in the workplace?
A common example of sexual harassment is forcing anyone to do anything inappropriate or unlawful on the basis of a sexual act to keep their job. You may have a valid claim if you reported an act of sexual harassment and were demoted, fired, or otherwise penalized as a relationship. If you are the victim of either of these common examples of sexual harassment, retain the services of an experienced Atlanta employee rights attorney who will attain the justice you deserve.
