Workplace sexual harassment can be subtle enough to cause doubt

Have you ever felt strangely uncomfortable around a supervisor or a co-worker without being able to pinpoint specific harassing behaviors? If you said yes, then you are not alone. Many employees in North Carolina have reported similar feelings, some of which are so disturbing that these workers quit their jobs.

Sexual harassment from customers or clients isn't acceptable

There are often complex human components to many jobs that require compromise and people skills. For example, if you work as a customer service representative, you will need to maintain a positive rapport with the individuals whom you assist. If you work in sales, being friendly or outgoing can improve your chances of a bigger commission check.

Politicians want McDonald's to end workplace sexual harassment

In terms of employment law, sexual harassment in the workplace is expressly prohibited. Yet many of the workers employed by McDonald's have reported incidents of such harassment. Unfortunately, some of these allegations arose in our home state of North Carolina.

Seek legal help if a subcontractor compromises your own company

Construction law in North Carolina is quite complex. This is because the law seeks to serve and protect all parties from the property owner to the general contractor to the subcontractor. These widespread protections are critical in addressing disputes over construction defects and other matters. However, they make the law difficult for the involved parties to understand on a comprehensive level.

How to strengthen your case when you report sexual harassment

If you're the victim of sexual harassment at work, one of the first things you should do is file a complaint with your human resources (HR) department. The more evidence and witnesses you can provide, the better your chances will be of being believed and of your employer taking the necessary action to make it stop.
