Canton Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Canton, OH

Sexual harassment is defined under Ohio law as unwelcome conduct that is of a sexual nature, which includes both verbal and physical actions. Common 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 Ohio Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Canton employers may be required to formulate company policies concerning sexual conduct and post them for employees to see. 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.

Additionally, federal and Ohio laws create specific agencies which are responsible for handling sexual harassment cases. The agencies are given authority to investigate workplaces in Canton to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. 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 Ohio attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and proving a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too busy to handle individual claims. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Canton, as this might be the best way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Ohio.
