Idaho law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical acts. Prevalent 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 Star are often required to formulate company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. 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).
There are also agencies which are established by federal and Idaho law for the specific purpose of handling sexual harassment cases. Such agencies have the authority to investigate work sites to determine if the complaints they receive in Star are true. Additionally, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.

It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these issues to be overworked. Thus, hiring a Star lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of Idaho.
