As employee rights lawyers, we want everyone to understand 10 fundamental truths about sexual harassment in the workplace:
When sexual harassment occurs, victims feel degraded and unsafe. They find it difficult to do their jobs, and even just the thought of reporting for work can induce fear and trigger emotional trauma. Too often, the situation escalates from unwelcome comments to unwanted touching and threats. In some cases, assaults occur. You have the right to a workplace free of sexual harassment. Call now for a free & confidential consultation from a sexual harassment attorney in Jackson, Ohio.
