What if I’m being sexually harassed by my boss or coworker? Ohio Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Sexual harassment is a serious issue. Contact our office to speak with our Ohio Sexual Harassment Lawyer if you believe you have been sexually harassed.

Sexual harassment may include unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

The harasser may be of the same sex as the victim. In other words, males can sexually harass other males and females can sexually harass other females. The harasser may also be a supervisor, another member of management, a co-worker, or an individual who is not an employee, such as a client or customer.

In general, the law does not apply to teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not serious, but harassment is illegal if it becomes so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile work environment or when it results in an adverse employment action, such as termination, demotion, pay reduction, etc.

Our firm has a page that discusses some of the details of sexual harassment claims here. You can also find information about hostile work environments here.

If you are a victim of sexual harassment, you should make sure that it is clear the comments or actions are unwelcome. In addition, you should review the employee handbook and submit a written complaint as set forth in the handbook. Make sure you keep a copy of the complaint. If you submit a complaint, you are protected from retaliation by your employer and the harasser. Finally, you should also speak with an employment attorney immediately.
