    If you’re a sexual harassment victim, you should contact an Atlanta sexual harassment lawyer. Sexual harassment is prevalent in many workplaces. It generally takes one of two forms: quid pro quo harassment or hostile work environment harassment. Quid pro quo harassment occurs when a supervisor demands sexual favors from an employee in return for a job opportunity. Hostile work environment sexual harassment occurs when a supervisor or co-worker fondles the victim, or makes sexually suggestive remarks.

    Our Atlanta employment dispute lawyers can help you end your workplace nightmare. We’ll also help you recover compensation for the harms you’ve suffered.

    Sexual Harassment Retaliation

    Many sexual harassment victims are afraid to speak up. They justifiably fear that their harasser will try and “even the score” by punishing them. Many victims also report that they’ve been marked for termination after they’ve filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Others are punished after they complain to the human resources department.

    Your employer and co-workers can’t retaliate against you for making a sexual harassment complaint. They also can’t punish you for participating in a co-worker’s sexual harassment case. We urge you to contact an Atlanta sexual harassment lawyer if they unlawfully targeted you.

    What If I Am Being Harassed After I Ended A Consensual Romantic Relationship?

    Workplace romantic relationships are quite common. According to a study performed by Career Builder, 38% of U.S. workers have dated someone that worked for the same company. Workplace romances aren’t unlawful. But, they can become problematic when they occur between a supervisor and their subordinate.

    If the employee decides to end the relationship, the manager often continues to make sexual advances. Many victims wonder whether the unwelcome sexual advances are unlawful if the original relationship was consensual. All sexual advances are unlawful if they’re not not consensual.
