Types of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
There are many types of sexual harassment in the workplace that do not include direct or even sexualized advances. It can include an offensive email or comments degrading women. However, it can also take the form of physical harassment and directly making sexual comments. In any case, sexual harassment is never something you have to tolerate.
At Lawless, Lawless & McGrath, in San Francisco, California, our attorneys understand the stress harassment of any kind can put on you when it happens at your place of employment. We advocate for you to uphold your right to work in an environment that is not hostile or uncomfortable because of someone else’s inability to interact appropriately with co-workers.
Harassment Creates an Offensive Work Environment
An off-handed comment or a mistaken offensive email that happens only one time is not sexual harassment under the law. Harassment must happen repeatedly and make you uncomfortable or result in negative consequences for you, such as losing your job due to speaking up about the issue. Knowing what constitutes harassment is an essential part of fighting your case, and our lawyers know the ins and outs of sexual harassment cases. They serve as advisers who help you navigate the law while also enabling you to stand up for yourself.
Speak Out and Stop the Abuse
Sexual harassment is like any abusive situation. Even though it is happening at your place of employment, that does not mean it is not wrong. While others may accept it, you do not have to. You have the right to speak out against it and stop it. Our attorneys at Lawless, Lawless & McGrath have worked many cases similar to yours and know the steps to take to help you.
