Victims of sexual harassment often feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. Three steps that should be taken.
Step One: Report It To Your Employer
As soon as possible, report the harassment to your employer. Your human resources department should be available to help.
Step Two: Preserve The Evidence Of Harassment
Harassing emails and notes can be hurtful. It is tempting to simply throw them away. Unfortunately, doing so also disposes of physical evidence that may play a valuable role in your case. That evidence must be preserved. Did any of your co-workers witness the harassment? Gather their names. Additionally, keep track of the dates and times when the harassment took place. Details are critical to the success of a claim.
Step Three: Contact An Employment Law Attorney
Many people hesitate to take legal action for fear of losing their job or facing some other type of retaliation from their employer. Retaliation is illegal. An experienced attorney can protect you from that and all other wrongdoing on the part of your employer. Fast action is important, however, because there are legal deadlines. We encourage you to contact us at Kennard Law, P.C., so we can make sure all deadlines are met.
