Sex Harassment and Discrimination.


Employers are prohibited from treating employees differently due to certain attributes, including their gender, sex, or sexual orientation. The discriminatory and harassing treatment may be verbal or physical. Employers may treat all persons of a particular gender a certain way, or might only treat one person differently due to their protected status.


Employees that are discriminated against are often also sexually harassed. Offensive conduct, gestures, and statements based upon sex may amount to harassment under the law. Some managers are just bad at their jobs and that is not necessarily illegal. The harassment must be severe or pervasive. Employers must investigate complaints of harassment and you are allowed to have legal representation if you participate in such an investigation.


Employees who believe they are being subjected to discrimination or harassment should immediately complain to their employer and seek legal advice.
