What is Sexual Harassment under Arizona Law?

Arizona law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical acts. Some forms of sexual harassment that are most commonly committed by an employer include exchanging favoritism for sexual favors, the creation of a hostile work environment of a sexual nature, and sexual advances.

How does Arizona Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Cottonwood employers can be required to formulate company policies that specifically address sexual harassment in the workplace. These must be posted in a visible area such as a break room. Company polices might include such matters as contact information to be used in reporting sexual harassment, filing policies, and remedial measures in the event that a claim is proven to be true.

Furthermore, federal and Arizona laws create specific agencies which are responsible for handling sexual harassment cases. The agencies are given authority to investigate workplaces in Cottonwood to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. Such laws also make it illegal for employers to dismiss an employee for filing a harassment claim or to take any other action based on retaliation against the employee.

How can a Arizona attorney help?

A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and prove without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these issues to be overworked. Because of this, working with a Cottonwood attorney may be the ideal way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
