By law an employee may not be sexually harassed on the job. Sexual harassment basically refers to sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other words or conduct of a sexual nature.
Hostile work environments are prohibited.
Sexual harassment is forbidden regardless of whether it is between people of the opposite sex or people of the same sex.
By law there are very short time periods (statutes of limitations) for bringing a claim for sexual harassment. If you feel you have been sexually harassed in your workplace, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to protect any rights you have. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your case.
