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 Kuna 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.
Idaho and federal laws created agencies that process claims involving sexual harassment. They have the authority to investigate Kuna workplaces regarding the conduct alleged in the complaints that have been filed with them. Such laws also make it illegal for employers to fire an employee for filing a harassment claim or to take any other action based on retaliation against the employee.
How can a Idaho attorney help?
Investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim might be difficult without consulting someone with expertise in the relevant laws. Federal investigators are often very overworked. Because of this, working with a Kuna attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
