4 Ways to Recognize Sexual Harassment at Work

workplace sexual harassment Sexual harassment is a prevalent issue often ignored. There are any numbers of reasons why a victim may choose to deny it and remain silent. But silence does not mitigate the effect or end the abuse.

When sexual harassment at work goes unnoticed and unreported, it can wreak havoc on the life of the victim and the lives of their loved ones. Recognizing the signs of sexual harassment at work is the first step. The victim should consult with an experienced sexual harassment attorney to protect his or her rights. With proper guidance, the harassment should be reported to management or not, depending upon the circumstances.

4 Key Ways to Recognize Workplace Sexual Harassment

The first step to dealing with sexual harassment at work is to recognize it is taking place. Below are 4 key ways to recognize sexual harassment in your work environment.

  1. The behavior makes you feel uncomfortable. This is often one of the very first signs that sexual harassment may be present at your job. Every employee deserves to work in a non-hostile work environment. If a co-worker, superior, vendor or any non-employee is sexually harassing you, you need to recognize that this is not acceptable and that you should take immediate steps to stop it.
  2. The words are offensive to you. Most of us were raised with the notion that words do not hurt and to ignore them. This is not the case at your job. Words, or jokes, that are based on sexual nature, race, color, age, name-calling, slurs, or insulting comments fall into an unlawful conduct when done in a work environment. If you have experienced any offensive words, you should immediately consult a sexual harassment attorney to help guide you to protect your legal rights.
  3. You feel intimidated at work. If you feel that your feelings of intimidation are stemming from one or both of the ways listed above, then you may be the victim of sexual harassment. You should seek assistance because no employee should feel intimidated at his or her job.
  4. Going to work makes you sick. If going to work makes you sick, you should evaluate the reason behind this feeling. Sexual harassment can cause mental distress and physical ailments, especially if you have to endure this type of treatment regularly. You should put a stop to feeling sick at your job and take action by contacting a New York sexual harassment attorney today.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
