What Should I Do if I am Being Sexually Harassed?
1. Document incidents: Keep a written record of all incidents of sexual harassment, including dates, times, locations, and details of what occurred. This can help provide evidence if you decide to take legal action.
2. Report the harassment: Report the sexual harassment to your employer or human resources representative as soon as possible. Follow your company’s policies and procedures for reporting harassment, and keep a copy of any written complaints or correspondence for your records.
3. Seek support: Talk to a trusted colleague, supervisor, or mentor about the situation. They may be able to offer support, advice, or assistance in addressing the harassment.
4. Preserve evidence: Save any emails, text messages, voicemails, or other forms of communication that contain evidence of the harassment. These can serve as important documentation in case of legal action.
5. Know your rights: Educate yourself about your rights and protections under local, state, and federal laws regarding sexual harassment in the workplace. Familiarize yourself with your company’s policies on harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
6. Avoid retaliation: Be cautious of any retaliation from the harasser or others in the workplace. Retaliation is illegal and should be reported immediately if it occurs.
7. Seek legal advice: Consider consulting with an experienced employment law attorney who specializes in sexual harassment cases. They can provide you with legal advice and guidance on your rights and options for pursuing a legal remedy.
8. Take care of yourself: Sexual harassment can be emotionally and psychologically distressing. Make sure to prioritize your well-being and seek support from trusted friends, family, or mental health professionals as needed.
9. Keep it confidential, if desired: It’s important to note that you have the right to keep your experience confidential if you choose to do so. You are not obligated to share your experience with anyone unless you feel comfortable doing so.
10. Follow up: Follow up with your employer or human resources representative after reporting the harassment to ensure that appropriate actions are being taken to address the situation. If the harassment persists or if you are not satisfied with the response, consider escalating the matter to higher management or legal authorities.
Remember, sexual harassment in the workplace is unacceptable and illegal. You have the right to a safe and respectful work environment. It’s important to take action to protect yourself and seek appropriate support and resources.
