Sexual harassment, defined by law, is any unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors or any conduct of a sexual nature. If your supervisor or co-worker is sexually harassing you, you have an obligation to inform someone in authority. Your employer has a duty to take immediate remedial action. If you do report the sexual harassment and your employer does nothing about it, then you have the right to file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR). Whatever type of harassment you may experience, it is a serious problem and you must be proactive. Do not suffer in silence. Sexual harassment is prohibited by both state and federal laws. If you have experienced any form of sexual harassment in your workplace, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
