Empower yourself to stand up against workplace sexual harassment

One of the most troubling emotional aspects of sexual harassment in the workplace is how quickly it can make a strong individual feel victimized. No one ever wants to feel powerless and weak or helpless to prevent unwanted workplace behaviors.

At the same time, many who experience sexual harassment still wish to keep their jobs. What can potential victims in North Carolina do to protect themselves from such behaviors?

Our attorneys are always seeking ways to help potential victims avoid becoming one of the many who are devastated by this harassment. We know how hard it is to stand against these behaviors when you are concerned about losing your job. The good news is that the law is on your side in such circumstances.

Taking a proactive approach may work in deterring sexual harassment at its earliest signs. When you show a potential harasser that you will never give in, it may stop the harassment before it escalates into even more aggressive behavior.

The first thing you should do is to tell your harasser in clear terms to stop their unwanted behavior. It is also a good idea to start a journal describing precisely what is going on in your workplace.

If that does not end the harassment, report the activity to human resources and follow your organization's written procedures about the undesired activity. When nothing you do stops sexual harassment, it is wise to seek legal guidance. Obtaining legal protection early in your ordeal can help you preserve your job while putting a stop to your harassment.

  • I recommend the law offices of Randolph M. James. He and his associate kept me informed throughout my case and were very knowledgeable about the facts surrounding my situation. Because of their experience, they were able to guide me to the proper venue where the judiciary was qualified to deal with complex issues such as mine. Thus, we received a favorable outcome. Should I need legal counsel in the future, I would obtain the services of Randolph M. James again.
