You should never feel unsafe or uncomfortable in the workplace. If you are experiencing sexual harassment or discrimination, you should report it immediately.
Your employer has a responsibility to prevent, investigate, and properly address any and all sexual harassment complaints.
What To Do
If you experience sexual harassment in the workplace, you should take detailed notes of the harassment. This documentation can help with your sexual harassment claim and any potential, future litigation. These detailed records should include:
- Nature of the harassment
- When and where harassment took place
- Who was involved
- Any potential witnesses to the harassment
While keeping these records, you should make sure to tell the harasser that their actions are wrong and making you uncomfortable. You should also ask your harasser to stop the harassment immediately.
If the harassment continues, please notify your manager or employer of the harassment. Also refer to your employee handbook for relevant protocol on making a formal complaint. If your employment has a human resources department, you should reach out with any questions and concerns.
Next, you should contact a New Jersey sexual harassment attorney. A sexual harassment lawyer can inform you of your rights and any potential options going forward.
