One of the most obvious signs of sexual harassment in the workplace is unwelcome touching or grabbing of body parts. There is no occupation in which this is acceptable behavior in the workplace or at a job-related function.
How Do You Know If You Should Speak With An Attorney?
- If unwelcome touching or grabbing occurs even once if it feels violative.
- If it is repetitive and unwelcome (e.g., repeated shoulder massages, grabbing of the waist or thigh, or any other contact that could be perceived as sexual in nature).
If physical contact is severe or frequent enough that it is disturbing, you should speak with an attorney right way. Sexual harassment claims have a strict statute of limitations that is usually about one year. Time limits vary, so it is critical that you speak with an attorney before too much time has passed.
We can help you pursue legal action and gain protection from further harassment and retaliation the sooner you contact us.
