Sexual harassment is a terrible crime yet, sadly, it is a crime that many employees experience in their place of work. From subtle comments to bold sexual advances, an employee may find themselves the victim of unwanted attention by a CEO, manager, supervisor, or coworker.
Learn how to report workplace sexual harassment and hold responsible parties accountable for their actions.
Reporting Workplace Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment takes many different forms, and can be physical, verbal, visual, electronic, and more.
If you have experienced any form of sexual harassment in your workplace, you should follow your organization’s appropriate guidelines for reporting it. It’s important to keep in mind that it is against the law for your employer to take any kind of negative employment action against you for reporting sexual harassment.
You will then need to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 300 days of the last incident of sexual harassment.
In light of what you may have experienced in your workplace, it can seem intimidating or overwhelming to take the appropriate actions against your harasser.
