Harassment in the workplace based on a protected characteristic such as sex, age, race, national original or disability, is prohibited in the workplace. However, it is generally the employee’s obligation to report any harassment to which the employee is subject. If you fail to report the harassment, you may not lose your right to proceed forward in court. Additionally, if you are fired because you made a report of harassment, you may be able to proceed forward with a claim of retaliation. Thus, it is very important that you know your rights. Any questions, please contact Darren McClain.
