Sexual Harassment

sexual HarassmentIn the context of employment, sexual harassment can involve a tangible loss, such as a denied promotion when an employee refuses a manager's sexual overtures, or it can take a form that does not result in tangible damages - like ongoing harassment by a group of co-workers that causes emotional distress but not a loss of income. Both forms of sexual harassment are illegal under federal and state law in Arizona.

Sexual harassment can occur in a wide range of situations ranging from inappropriate touching, gesturing or joking in the office to problematic sexual relationships between employee and boss. Victims of sexual harassment have the right to take action, first by filing charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Arizona Civil Rights Division, and then by suing their employers in court if the former process fails to resolve the problem. An employment law attorney can help you decide what course of action to take if you have experienced sexual harassment.
