Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Employers are prohibited from creating a harassing, threatening, or hostile environment for workers due to their gender or sex. There are various legal standards that have been put into place to protect both male and females employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. At the Law Office of Yuriy Moshes, P.C., we provide victims of sexual harassment with a place to turn to when their employers refuse to help. You deserve the right to feel comfortable and safe every time you go to work.
What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is a term that refers to various types of inappropriate behavior used in the workplace based on an employee’s gender. This may include a supervisor who touches you sexually, comments that others make when you are around as well as inappropriate physical touching. An employee may come across sexually explicit pictures posted online, shared via inter-office e-mail, or in the locker room. Your employer cannot legally fire you, demote you, or make any other adverse changes to your job title or duties because you complained of sexual harassment in the workplace. It is also against the law for an employer to fire you for refusing sexual favors or ignoring requests for sexual acts.
