Connecticut law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical action. Sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment that is blatantly sexual in nature, and sexual advances are some of the more prevalent types of sexual harassment amongst employers.

How does Connecticut Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First of all, employers in the city of Naugatuck may be required to implement company policies with regards to sexual harassment and post these in a visible location so that employees may be informed. Such policies should include items such as contact information for reporting harassment incidents, procedures for filing claims, and any corrective or preventative measures should a claim be proven.

Connecticut and federal laws appointed agencies that process claims involving sexual harassment. They have the authority to investigate Naugatuck workplaces regarding the conduct alleged in the complaints that have been filed with them. Additionally, under these laws, employers may not fire or retaliate against any employee who has alleged sexual harassment in a claim.

How can a Connecticut attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and establishing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, often too busy to give much attention to any one claim. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Naugatuck, as this might be the best way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Connecticut.
