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 action. Some types 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, Sierra Vista employers can be required to implement company policies that specifically address sexual harassment in the workplace. These must be posted in a visible area such as a break room. Matters covered by such policies should include contact information used by employees to report incidents, handling procedures for claims, and corrective measures (in the event that a claim turns out to be true).

There are also federal and Arizona laws that have created agencies to handle sexual harassment claims. These agencies have authority to investigate a Sierra Vista workplace for the sexual harassment conduct that is alleged in the complaints they receive. Employers are also prohibited 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?

If you do not have any expertise in the applicable laws, it may be difficult to investigate and establish a claim involving sexual harassment. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these matters to be overworked. Thus, hiring a Sierra Vista lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of Arizona.
