If you are affected by sexual harassment in the workplace, then your rights have been breached. Sexual harassment is a form of sexual discrimination when it creates a hostile work environment, interferes with your ability to perform your job, or affects any employment-related matter, such as your wage or your ability to secure a promotion.
If you are being sexually harassed in Lancaster, you should take action to end the harassment and seek remedy for any losses you have incurred. At the offices of Marshall Forman & Schlein LLC, our experienced Lancaster sexual harassment attorneys are capable of providing you with competent legal representation during the process.
Sexual harassment can refer to a number of different actions that may be verbal, physical, or visual. For example, making a sexual advance, requesting a sexual favor (whether in return for something, such as a promotion, or not), making inappropriate sexual references and comments, and making derogatory remarks about someone based on their sex are all types of sexual harassment.
If you are being sexually harassed at work, the first thing that you should do is tell the harasser to stop harassing you, and report the harassment to a supervisor or manager. You should also immediately document any acts of sexual harassment, as well as the fact that you have reported the harassment to a supervisor. If the harassment continues, it is essential that you thoroughly document it.
If the harassment does not end after being reported, or if you are a victim of retaliation (i.e. because you reported the harassment, you are put on probation at work), you should immediately contact an experienced Lancaster sexual harassment attorney who can help you to prepare a charge of discrimination to file with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC) or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
After you file a charge of discrimination, the OCRC or EEOC will investigate the harassment. The commission is responsible for determining whether or not sexual harassment and sexual discrimination took place, and if so, what can be done to remedy the situation.
If the problem is not resolved, you have a right to file a lawsuit. You should not initiate a lawsuit without speaking with an attorney first.
