When should I hire an attorney for sexual harassment?

If you think you are being sexually harassed at work, it can be hard to know when you need to take a stand. The easy answer is to say you should take action immediately, but figuring out exactly which action to take can be complicated.

There are actions you can take on your own, but it's also important to know when you need a lawyer.

It's never too early to consult with an attorney. If you simply have questions about sexual harassment laws, or are unsure of whether your workplace situation constitutes sexual harassment, a lawyer can help.

We've written in the past about verbal sexual harassment. Sometimes it can be difficult to know what behaviors cross the line. Speaking to an attorney will help you understand the best courses of action, whether it be to speak to the coworker making you uncomfortable or to report the issue to human resources or your supervisor.

Here are questions to ask yourself when considering whether you need legal representation for workplace sexual harassment:

  • Are the comments or actions sexual in nature?
  • Has the work environment become uncomfortable for you?
  • Has action been taken to address the issue, but problems remain?
  • Have you spoken to your employer about the abuse?
  • Are you concerned about your employer retaliating if you file a complaint?

These are some of the questions you may find yourself asking about sexual harassment. Even if you are unsure of whether what you are experiencing constitutes sexual harassment, or don't currently plan on filing a lawsuit, an attorney can be a valuable resource.
