For many victims of sexual harassment, it takes courage to speak out. But it’s the only way to protect your rights and your job. Here are some simple tips for dealing with it at the workplace:
- Contact The Cromer Law Group PLLC, so that we can help obtain an EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) Right to Sue Letter before it’s too late. We don’t recommend that you do this on your own.
- The Cromer Law Group PLLC can help you write a letter or e-mail to a manager so your complaint of sexual harassment is in writing.
- Make sure it is clear to your harasser that the offensive conduct is unwelcome.
- Keep a journal of all incidents with the dates and details.
- Do not engage in behavior, jokes, or interactions at work that could be used against you.
- Do not drink alcohol with co-workers or managers.
- Obtain a copy of all of your employer’s sexual harassment policies, so that The Cromer Law Group PLLC can better determine whether your employer has violated its own policies.
- Make a list of all potential witnesses, they can also be anonymous witnesses.
- If you are experiencing emotional distress, please communicate your symptoms to your doctor.
- Make an appointment with a psychologist or therapist to begin documenting your emotional distress symptoms.
