We Are Here to Help All Victims of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Though many of us would like to think that we’ve moved past a time where people are sexually harassed, or harassed at all, in the workplace, unfortunately, this is simply not the case, as the #metoo movement and other movements have shown just how prevalent sexual harassment in the workplace really is. That being said, if you believe that you are a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, you have a staunch defender in our Georgia employee rights attorney. Please continue reading and speak with our firm to learn more about how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What is sexual harassment in the workplace?

Chances are, if you believe that you were sexually harassed, you are right. You should first understand that sexual harassment is far from physical harassment; verbal or written harassment in the workplace also counts. Fortunately, you are protected under the law. In fact, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) specifically states that sexual harassment is a form of discrimination. Sexual harassment violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which means that anyone who receives an unwanted verbal or physical advance based on their sex that creates a hostile work environment can file a sexual harassment claim. You should first file this claim with your HR department, and if this doesn’t work, you should strongly consider hiring a Georgia employment law attorney.

Examples of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

There are various ways in which an individual can commit an act of sexual harassment in the workplace. Generally speaking, forcing anyone to do anything either inappropriate or unlawful on the basis of a sexual act simply to keep their job is an act of sexual harassment. Additionally, if you reported an act of sexual harassment and you were either demoted, fired, or were otherwise penalized as a form of retaliation, this is illegal, and there is a very good chance that you will have a valid claim. Our Georgia employee rights attorney is on your side, and will be through every step of the process in an effort to attain the justice you deserve. Give our firm a call today so we can get started.
