The timeframe to report workplace harassment can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific laws in place. In the U.S., for example, under federal law, employees typically have 180 days from the harassment incident to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. However, this period can be extended to 300 days if state or local laws also address the harassment. It’s essential to check local regulations and consult with legal counsel if unsure.
Workplace harassment is a pervasive issue that impacts employees’ morale, productivity, and overall well-being. At McOmber McOmber & Luber, we are passionate about fighting for those who have fallen victim to this insidious behavior.
