If you have been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, you have two choices: you can sit back and wait for this to happen again, or you can take the initiative to ensure that you are in a better place in the future.
It is easy to feel helpless if you have become a victim of sexual harassment. You may even believe that the only way out is to quit your job.
Even if there are people in your company saying there is nothing they can do to help, this is not true. You have legal rights as an employee, and there is nothing wrong with exercising these.
There are both federal and state laws in place to protect you, as well as other employees, from sexual harassment. If you don’t speak up, you are only harming yourself, not to mention the fact that you are also harming other employees who could be put in the same position in the future.
Once you speak up, it’s time to closely monitor what happens. The problem should go away. Along with this, you should not be retaliated against.
If you find yourself in this unenviable position, it’s time to contact our law firm. We have helped many people fight back against sexual harassment in the workplace.
You don’t want to be in this position, but remember one thing: You did nothing wrong. You can learn more about your rights on our website and blog. You can also call us on the phone to setup a consultation and learn more about your particular situation.
