Some valuable steps to protecting yourself and building a strong case against sexual harassment are:
- Thoroughly document the harassment that is taking place. Include details like dates, times, who is involved, witnesses, comments, inappropriate touching, or any other relevant information.
- Report the harassment at work. Sexual harassment claims are against employers. If you do not make your employer aware of the harassment, this can damage your claim. Report the harassment to your human resources department and/or your boss and let him or her know that you feel uncomfortable at work.
- Review your employee handbook. Many employers have official policies regarding harassment. If you do not have a copy of the handbook, request one. If your workplace does not have one put together, ask if there are any other employee policies that you can have copies of.
