There are not many things worse than being sexually harassed at your place of employment. Not only is this against the law, but it can make your work life very challenging.
It can be difficult to determine if you have been a victim of sexual harassment. For this reason, you need a qualified attorney on your side that can help you determine what happened and then decide how you should move forward.
Here are several examples of sexual harassment in the workplace:
- Sexual favors being requested in return for a promotion, pay raise, or some other perk
- Being touched in a sexual manner without your consent
- Other employees, including superiors or co-workers, making sexual comments to you or about you
Don’t Delay in Contacting an Attorney
In the state of Massachusetts, you only have 300 days from the most recent offense to file a claim. In other words, if you wait longer than 300 days you are unable to file a claim for sexual harassment. For this reason, it is essential to seek legal advice immediately if you feel you have been a victim.
