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.

Sexual harassment is defined as offensive and unwelcome sexual conduct from a supervisor, co-worker, or anyone else in the workplace. Sexual harassment can include such things as:

  • Unwelcome physical contact of a sexual nature
  • Requests or suggestions for sexual activity
  • Sexually suggestive or offensive remarks, stories and jokes
  • Graphic comments about a person’s body or physical appearance
  • Displays of sexually suggestive objects, screen savers, pictures, cartoons and similar items
  • E-mails and other communications of a sexual nature

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.
