When an Inappropriate Line Is Crossed
When harassment and other misconduct occurs in the workplace, it can make you feel isolated and unsafe. If your instincts tell you that what you are experiencing is not right, you may have a legitimate harassment claim. Some examples of harassment in the workplace can include:
- Sexual or racial jokes or threats at work
- A sexual proposition in exchange for advancement or continued employment
- Inappropriate bodily contact
- The presence of lewd or offensive photographs in the workplace
Sexual harassment is accounted for in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If your employer has more than 12 employees, harassment is a violation of West Virginia state law. If you suspect that your work environment is fostering harassment, an experienced employment law attorney can help you take action.
