Sexual harassment is defined by 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, employers in London are often required to formulate company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the process for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.
There are also agencies which are established by federal and Ohio 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 London are true. These laws also prohibit employers from firing employees or taking any retaliatory action against workers who have complained of sexual harassment.
How can a Ohio attorney help?
A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and prove without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. Federal investigators are often extremely overworked. Because of this, working with a London attorney may be the ideal way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
