Do I have a claim if I’ve been receiving unwanted sexual advanced or comments at work?
I often get calls from both men and women who have been sexually harassed at work and they’re still working there. They come asking whether or not they have a claim or, in other words, whether they are protected under the law from being discriminated against sexually, either because they’re a man or because they’re a woman. The answer is, in most cases, yes. There is no reason why any employee should have to run a sexual gauntlet just to put food on the table, to keep the lights on in their house and provide for their family. That is immoral, it’s wrong, and oftentimes it’s illegal.
