Sexual Harassment at Work: Don’t be a Victim

If you have been sexually harassed at work, it goes without saying that you will be upset about what happened. While you have the right to feel this way, don’t let it stop you from making sound decisions moving forward.

First and foremost, you should report the harassment to your company’s HR department and/or supervisor. Don’t delay in doing so, as you want to get this out in the open as soon as possible.

From there, consult with a reputable sexual harassment attorney for guidance. You may be entitled to receive compensation for:

  • Future lost earnings
  • Back pay
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages
  • Attorney fees and expenses

Sexual harassment can include everything from unwanted sexual advances to verbal or physical harassment.

If you feel like somebody has crossed the line, it is time to report them to the appropriate party and then speak with an attorney about your legal rights as an employee.
