Connecticut Sexual Harassment Attorney

What Is Considered "Sexual Harassment" in the Workplace?

Sexual harassment is a very serious form of employment discrimination that occurs far too often in the workplace. It can be demoralizing for an employee when a person makes unwanted sexual advances or requests for sexual favors in exchange for keeping his or her job, receiving a promotion or additional benefits. Sexual harassment can be the driving factor in a hostile work environment where there is a presence of objectionable pornography or verbal offenses such as sexual jokes, remarks or insults made by co-workers.

Federal and state laws prohibit both types of sexual harassment and any victims of traumatic sexual harassment should seek legal advice from an accomplished New Haven employment discrimination attorney who understands the need for effective representation when moving forward with the initial actions to help you get the matter resolved. Documenting sexual harassment activity in the workplace is important and it can include keeping a journal, retaining emails and text or phone messages, getting witness statements and other supporting visual or audio evidence.

For a victim, the consequences of sexual harassment discrimination in the workplace can reach beyond the job and into other facets of life. Many sexual harassment victims feel they will lose their jobs or suffer other consequences in retaliation for rejected sexual advances, and can suffer great emotional distress. Moreover, this extremely difficult work environment can lead to depression and isolation from family and friends. There is a lot more at stake for sexual harassment victims than their jobs, and identifying these affected areas is critical to the success of any case.
