As an employee, you give a large portion of your life up to your job. It is only fair that your employer respect your rights as an employee. Your rights include but are not limited to:
- The right to work in an environment that is free from harassment or discrimination;
- The right to a safe work environment that is free from hazards that could cause you to become injured;
- The right to bring violations of your rights to your employer’s attention (without retaliation).
If you’re your co-workers or your employer have interfered with your employee rights in the workplace, you may need an attorney to assist you in navigating the road to fair compensation, and enforcement of the laws that protect you as an employee.
Some examples of sexual harassment include:
- Unwanted sexual advances of any kind.
- Verbal comments of a sexual nature.
- Sexually suggestive physical contact.
- Displaying sexual pictures or objects.
- Making unwanted or inappropriate sexual jokes or innuendos.
