Sexual abuse in the workplace is a common occurrence, prompting laws against it at the federal and state governmental levels. The intention of the laws is to provide a safe environment for workers free of sexual abuse and harassment. Both men and women may be subjected to unwanted touching, verbal or visual harassment by other employees, supervisors or business owners. Fearing job security, victims may not report the abuse or in some cases submit to unwanted sexual activities.
Sexual hazing can be all too easily brushed aside as unimportant or just a part of life, and not taken seriously when the truth is that the mental and physical harm and turmoil that it can create can be devastating and change one's life forever. No one has the right to cause you mental anguish or harm, especially in your workplace where you are endeavoring to make a living by doing your job and assisting your employer with your work. Where the employer himself is the guilty party in a sexual hazing case it becomes even more important to take action. When your livelihood is threatened by the actions of an employer's own misconduct the ramifications can be vast and it is time to take action to immediately address the actions in civil court. We can assist you to end the sexual hazing and to seek the compensation you deserve.
Sex discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person's sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
Employers and co-workers who abuse their positions of power and authority for sexual favors should be held accountable for crimes of sexual abuse in the workplace. A quid pro quo demand against a worker is a terrible crime that no one should have to endure, especially when convinced that the only way to advance in a career is to submit to sexual abuse.
A work environment should provide an opportunity for individuals to work toward their goals and achieve success in life and not have to deal with sexual advances or abuse. An unwanted or abusive sexual encounter at work can have an adverse effect on an individual physically, mentally and emotionally. It is reassuring to know there is a prominent team of dedicated attorneys working for the rights of those who have suffered sexual abuse at work.
