Idaho law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical action. Frequent examples of sexual harassment done by employers include making sexual advances, creating an overtly sexual and offensive work environment, and making demands for sexual favors as a condition to promotion.
How does Idaho Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?
First, employers in Burley are often required to implement company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. Company polices might include such matters as contact information to be used in reporting sexual harassment, filing procedures, and remedial measures in the event that a claim is proven to be true.
The laws of the state of Idaho and federal law have both appointed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Burley work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Furthermore, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.
How can a Idaho attorney help?
A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and show without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these matters to be overworked. Because of this, working with a Burley attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
