Attorney Representation for Sexual Harassment in Atlanta
Sexual harassment is a type of job discrimination
prohibited by employment law. Sexual harassment comes in many
forms, and the victim may be either a woman or a man. The
harasser does not have to be the opposite sex for the conduct
to qualify as sexual harassment.
The first step towards ending sexual harassment
at work is to tell the harasser that their behavior is inappropriate
and offensive and should stop immediately. If the company
has a written policy concerning sexual harassment, including
reporting the harassment to management, the victim should
follow those specific procedures. Failing to do so could form
the basis for a defense against a sexual harassment claim.
Unfortunately, reporting harassment to management does not
always resolve the problem. Sometimes, the harasser owns or
runs the company, and there is no one in management above
the harasser to report to. If the harassing conduct continues
after it has been properly reported, there may be grounds
for a cause of action against the employer and the harasser
under federal and state law.
