Sexual Harassment on the Job
Sexual harassment is a serious offense. When it happens in the work place it is a degrading and debilitating experience. It permeates every aspect of a person’s working relationships and environment and often leaves the victim feeling helpless and with no place to turn.
It is common for the victim of sexual harassment to not know what to do or how to respond to it. After all, you expected your coworkers and managers to know better, and you didn’t think that by taking the job, you would have to be defending yourself against such crude and intolerable behavior.
At first you may have tried to ignore it, but that didn’t work. Then you may have tried to send the harasser signals that you didn’t like it, hoping he (or she) would get the message. But that didn’t work either. So then you started complaining about it - to friends, coworkers, maybe even to HR. And it’s still going on.
Now you don’t know what to do, because all you want is for it to stop. Don’t wait. Call us now to talk about the problem. We can advise you of your options, whether they may be formal legal remedies or informal means of dealing with the offender.
Remember, the longer you wait, the longer it will persist. The problem is probably not going to go away.
Don’t delay. The call is free and completely confidential.
Don’t be afraid.
