What to do When You Face Sexual Harassment

Unwanted sexual advances, lewd comments, and taking advantage of others in employment situations or work environments is certainly in the news.

What do you do if you find yourself a victim of these situations?

Make sure you document whatever you can.

Keep copies of emails, notes, texts, voice mails.

Compare experiences with co-workers or other people who have contact with the alleged abuser.

There is usually a pattern to the behavior of sexual deviants so note it and document it.

Take notes at the time the events happen to detail the circumstances and experiences.

Report the activities to your human resources department and keep copies of whatever you submit.

It is very difficult to deal with people in positions of power who attempt to sexually abuse and harass you.

However, the more these activities come to light the better it will be for victims.

Questions about your situation? Feel free to contact Illinois Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.

Any injuries are tragic, however when the at fault driver has no license, no insurance and is drunk everything becomes much worse. Sometimes there may be a recovery from the at fault driver’s assets. It is usually a very difficult process.
