Need a tough but comforting workplace harassment lawyer?
Certain forms of harassment, including sexual harassment, are illegal in the workplace. You should never be treated worse or made to feel uncomfortable because of harassment based on sex, race, religion, color, national origin, or age, and you should not be subjected to repeated unwanted sexual advances. You should never be required to tolerate illegal harassment as a condition of your job. If you’ve been harassed by your boss, your coworkers, or even a client, you should learn your rights and what you can do.
Workplace harassment is defined as any unwelcome conduct based on…
- Sex, including pregnancy
- National origin
- Genetic Information
The most common type of harassment is sexual harassment, which is any unwelcome conduct based on sex. If continued employment or employment decisions are based on your tolerance of sexual advances or behavior, then that behavior is illegal.
Sexual harassment may include…
- remarks about your physical appearance

- requests for sexual favors
