Sexual harassment is defined by New Jersey law as unwelcome conduct that is of a sexual nature, which includes both verbal and physical actions. Some forms of sexual harassment that are most commonly committed by an employer include exchanging favoritism for sexual favors, the creation of a hostile work environment of a sexual nature, and sexual advances.

How does New Jersey Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First of all, employers in the city of Brick may be required to formulate company policies with regards to sexual harassment and post these in a visible location so that employees may be informed. Company polices might include such matters as contact information to be used in reporting sexual harassment, filing policies, and remedial measures in the event that a claim is proven to be true.

Furthermore, federal and New Jersey laws create specific agencies which are responsible for handling sexual harassment cases. The agencies are given authority to investigate workplaces in Brick to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. Employers are also barred under these laws from taking action in retaliation against an employee who has claimed sexual harassment, such as firing them or denying them a promotion.

How can a New Jersey attorney help?

It can be difficult to both investigate and prove a sexual harassment claim without having any expertise in the applicable areas of law. Federal investigators are often extremely overworked. Because of this, working with a Brick attorney may be the ideal way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
