Regain Control After Experiencing Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment is a serious problem. Employers must therefore take any potential sexual harassment case seriously. Unfortunately, many organizations fail to shield workers who have experienced sexual harassment.
Hayward & Hayward, PLLC, will not take a lukewarm stance when it comes to your safety and well-being. We understand how sexual harassment can make workers feel trapped, powerless and disregarded. Our duty is to empower you and protect you.
We Will Stand Up For You
Sexual harassment can include a variety of verbal and physical actions, such as:
- Making lewd or highly suggestive comments
- Frequently criticizing or teasing a person’s sexual orientation or gender
- Sending inappropriate photos or messages to someone else in the workplace – even through personal email or social media accounts
- Making unwanted requests for sexual acts
Workers of any gender or sexual orientation can experience sexual harassment in Kentucky. However, no worker should have to simply accept harassment as a cost of doing business.
