Protecting Employee Interests In Sexual Harassment Claims
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of gender discrimination. Sexual harassment includes a wide array of conduct and may occur between individuals of the same or opposite genders. Sexual harassment decreases workplace morale, diminishes the dignity of employees, and can cause significant damage to the personal well-being and career of a harassed employee. Sexual harassment victims may suffer economic damages, such as lost past and future wages, and may also suffer significant emotional damages such as anxiety, depression, humiliation, shock, sleeplessness, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Fearful of losing their jobs, many victims endure the abuse. For this reason, sexual harassment is significantly underreported.
Under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) and other federal statutes, your employer has a responsibility to prevent, investigate, and properly address sexual harassment complaints. If you have been subjected to harassment, the individual harasser and your employer may be responsible to compensate you for economic damages and your pain and suffering
Sexual harassment can include a wide range of behaviors or mistreatment, including:
- Treating persons of a certain gender differently, such as paying them less or failing to promote them
- Making unwelcome innuendos, jokes or conversation that make a person of a certain gender or orientation feel uncomfortable
- Subjecting persons of a certain gender to increased scrutiny, criticism, and harassment, or otherwise making their workplace uncomfortable
- Sexual advances or propositions, including suggestions of trading advancement for sexual favors, commonly known as quid pro quo harassment
- Verbal or physical abuse
- Using sexist slurs or comments
- Terminating or disciplining an employee in retaliation for making a complaint
The success or failure of a sexual harassment claim can hinge on many factors.
