Sexual harassment can include unwelcome sexual advances, request for sexual favors, or verbal/physical conduct of a sexually harassing nature. Harassment that has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating environment is prohibited by state and federal statutes.
Most employers have written policies against sexual harassment and discrimination. If these policies are ineffective or despite these policies harassment continues, an experienced attorney familiar with workplace rights should be consulted. The Rayburn Law Office has protected workers subjected to sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. A free consultation with experienced counsel can protect against abuse and mistreatment in the workplace.
