Sleazy or silly?
At the water cooler, one employee tells another employee a lewd joke in the hearing of a number of other employees. Is this a situation of sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment can be defined as conduct that creates a hostile work environment or a form of sex discrimination that interferes with an employee’s success. This conduct can take the form of uninvited comments or behavior regarding a victim’s sex life, gender, or sexual orientation.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace is your guide to understanding, investigating, and representing sexual harassment cases.
How far is too far?
When an employee’s conduct allegedly involves sexual harassment, the accuser must prove that the conduct crossed the line while the accused will aim to prove it didn’t. In addition, the case will try to determine if the employer’s policies and reaction were enough to mitigate or defeat the accuser’s claim.
Effective representation starts with properly identifying sexual harassment. Find out what actions constitute sexual harassment and how to conduct effective investigations of harassment claims. In addition, learn:
- Fundamentals of sexual harassment cases
- Best practices for evaluating a sexual harassment complaint
- Potential defenses against sexual harassment claims
