In The Workplace
Workplace sexual harassment is not just an inconvenience that people can ignore or brush off as innocent behavior. This is something that can affect a person’s entire life, including their career, income, and emotional stability. The people who experience sexual harassment in the workplace often feel like they have no way out, especially if they do not have any other job options readily available.
At The Rager Law Firm, we want you to know that you have a voice and we will help amplify it. The people who have harassed you need to be held accountable.
What Is Sexual Harassment?
Studies show that as much as 27 percent of American adult women have been sexually harassed in the workplace. 74% of people say that their employers take sexual harassment seriously.
Why only 74%?
100% of employers need to take workplace sexual harassment seriously.
We want to look at sexual harassment, we can see that it is not always the physical contact that makes the behavior obvious. Certainly, physical sexual harassment happens and includes the following:
Any unwanted touching
Brushing of hair
“Accidental” bumps into people
But sexual harassment goes beyond that to other things. Have you ever heard the following at work:
“Hey, that dress really shows your curves.”
“Wow, you’ll get promoted soon. Look at that body.”
“I’ll show you a real man.”
That is sexual harassment
If a coworker has ever blocked your ability to move through a doorway, continually asked you out, or encouraged sexual favors, that is sexual harassment.
