The Face Of Sexual Harassment
We generally think of sexual harassment in traditional terms and with some good reason. Workplace harassment and gender bias are often perpetrated by male employees against female co-workers. But there are a growing number of cases that do not play to this stereotype. Men and women face the same and opposite-sex harassment in their places of work. Transgender and transsexual individuals also face harassment as well as roadblocks in their efforts toward advancement at work. Sexual favoritism can also constitute a sexually harassing work environment. If employees are having affairs with the boss and are receiving favorable treatment, you may have a sexual harassment or gender discrimination claim. If going to work has become problematic because of the harassing behavior of others, contact Toni Jaramilla, A Professional Law Corporation, today.
Perhaps you have been the victim of harassment in the workplace, but have been hesitant to do anything. The residual embarrassment and psychological and emotional trauma can be debilitating.
