Snowflake Sexual Harassment Attorney
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, Snowflake employers can be required to create 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 successful).
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 Snowflake to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. Additionally, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.
How can a Arizona attorney help?
It can be difficult to both investigate and establish a sexual harassment claim without having any expertise in the applicable areas of law. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too overworked to handle individual claims. Thus, hiring an attorney in Snowflake can be the safest way to file your claim within the deadlines for sexual harassment claims that Arizona has defined.
