Workplace Sexual Harassment
Putting A Stop To Unwanted Sexual Advances at Work
Watch the following educational legal video by experienced Hamburg labor lawyer Lisa A. Poch as she discusses how to handle workplace sexual harassment and how to stop unwanted sexual advances at work.
Unfortunately, I receive a number of calls from women who are being sexually harassed at work. That is unacceptable conduct. It’s very frustrating and sad that this goes on at the workplace, but it does. It is absolutely against the law to harass an employee sexually. If that happens to you, you have a claim against your employer and that manager, supervisor, or co-worker who’s sexually harassing you.
Sexual harassment can be physical – taking the form of unwanted touching at work – but it need not be physical. Instead, someone might be making inappropriate comments, giving you looks that make you feel uncomfortable, or just creating an overall work environment that’s sexualized, uncomfortable, offensive, and wrong. If you feel that you’re being sexually harassed at work, you probably are. You should reach out to an attorney right away so that we can stop that unlawful behavior.
There are legal protections for victims of harassment and actions victims can take, with the help of an attorney, to pursue justice, compensation, and security.
