How does Illinois Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers who are located in Decatur can be required to implement and visibly post company policies regulating sexual conduct. Such policies should include items such as contact information for reporting harassment incidents, process for filing claims, and any corrective or preventative measures should a claim be proven.

There are also federal and Illinois laws that have formed agencies to handle sexual harassment claims. These agencies have authority to investigate a Decatur workplace for the sexual harassment conduct that is alleged in the complaints they receive.
