Was It Sexual Harassment?
Chances are if you feel like you were sexually harassed, you were. To have a viable case, the harassment must come from a supervisor, manager or another co-worker.
Example of sexual harassment include:
- Making unwanted sexual advances, including inappropriate touching
- Talking about sexual acts
- Making inappropriate comments about your physical appearance
- Sharing indecent jokes or displaying sexual imagery
- Offering career advancement in exchange for sexual favors
Remember: It Is Not Your Fault
It may feel like everything in your life has been turned upside down. You may even feel like you would have been better off not reporting the harassment if you have been wrongfully terminated for coming forward. You may even have friends and co-workers asking if you were really harassed. This is normal, but still unfortunate.
