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, Maricopa 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.

The laws of the state of Arizona and federal law have both formed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Maricopa work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Employers are also barred under these laws from taking action in retaliation against an employee who has claimed sexual harassment, such as firing them or denying them a promotion.

How can a Arizona attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and proving a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these issues to be overworked. Because of this, working with a Maricopa attorney may be the ideal way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
