Utah employees have a right to be treated with respect and dignity from their employers and their coworkers. It is unlawful for an employer to change the terms or conditions of your employment if you have opposed sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment claims are complicated and employers defend them vigorously. You should not attempt to defend your rights to be free from sexual harassment in the workplace on your own. At Pearson Butler, we understand sexual harassment claims and how to hold employers responsible for violating sexual harassment laws.
If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, call Pearson Butler at (800) 265-2314 today. Our team of attorneys take a personalized approach to helping each client get the best possible results.
Sexual harassment is unwelcome sexual conduct that affects your work environment. It can occur by physical touching or by jokes and comments made by coworkers and supervisors.
Reporting sexual harassment to your employer is critical to preserve your rights. Be sure to follow company policy and procedure in reporting all sexual harassment you encounter. This is true even if you feel your complaint would be futile. If there isn’t a company policy or procedure, be sure to complain to your direct supervisor or someone with management level authority. When you report sexual harassment, document your complaints and detail who you spoke to, when you spoke to them, and exactly what you spoke about.
After your report, your employer should conduct an immediate investigation into your complaint and is supposed to take appropriate action to resolve the situation. If your employer does not resolve the situation, or if you face retaliation because of your complaint, contact an attorney at Pearson Butler immediately. At Pearson Butler, we understand that not all employers will do the right thing when faced with discrimination claims and stand ready to help protect your rights, your career, and your financial stability. If you have been sexually harassed, contact an employment attorney at Pearson Butler. We understand how to navigate your sexual harassment claim information, in mediation, or in a court of law.
