Sexual Harassment

metoo.jpgFor the past few months, allegations of sexual harassment and assault against profile celebrities and officials have dominated national headlines and social media. The ensuing #MeToo Twitter trend provided a platform for the world to speak out about sexual assault. Many of these sexual harassment and assault allegations occurred in a workplace setting where both men and women can be particularly vulnerable. 

Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many forms: a sexual advance in an interview or requests for sexual favors from a co-worker. Sexual harassment can occur at any age and between same or opposite genders. Sexual harassment can be physical or verbal. The one thing that all cases of sexual harassment have in common is the devastating effect it has on the victim.

Under state and federal employment laws, sexual harassment is prohibited when it creates a hostile work environment or results in an adverse employment decision such as being fired or demoted. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as well as state civil rights agencies, such as the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, enforce these laws and investigate employment discrimination complaints.

If you are experiencing workplace sexual harassment or another form of workplace harassment such as harassment based upon your age, dis ability, or race, our experienced attorneys at Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma may be able to help. Contact our office, and we will provide a safe and confidential free consultation to assess your particular situation and discuss your rights under the applicable federal and state employment laws.
