Certain types of workplace harassment are against the law in Newark, across Ohio, and throughout the entire country. Harassment takes many forms and when an employer or another employee engages in unlawful harassment, victims can hold the company and in some cases the supervisor liable. If an employee thinks unlawful harassment has occurred, he or she should speak to a Newark harassment attorney with experience in handling job harassment claims as soon as possible.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 defines certain protected classes. Ohio’s laws against discrimination, R.C. 4112 et. seq., mirrors many of the federal laws and protected classes. These classes are based on immutable personal characteristics including:

If you believe you are a victim of sexual harassment contact a Newark attorney with experience in sexual harassment cases right away.
Many people think that when harassment occurs, the worst thing that can happen is that an employee loses his or her job.

While it is possible to lose a job due to harassment, there are other long-term effects, as well.
Workplace harassment is a traumatic experience. As such, employees may experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result. This can cause long-term psychological damage that may take years to heal. Some individuals never fully recover.
Certain types of harassment, such as sexual harassment, may cause an employee to sustain serious physical injuries. A lawsuit for workplace harassment can help victims of harassment claims recover from these losses.
