How does New Jersey Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First of all, employers in the city of Hoboken may be required to establish company policies with regards to sexual harassment and post these in a visible location so that employees may be informed. The policies should at least include: contact information for the reporting of sexual harassment incidents, an outline of procedures to be followed in filing a claim, and the remedies available when a claim successfully proven.

Additionally, 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 Hoboken to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. Additionally, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.

How can a New Jersey attorney help?

A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and establish without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, often too busy to give much attention to any one claim. Thus, hiring a Hoboken lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of New Jersey.
