Jackson Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Jackson, TN

The laws of Tennessee define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including actions of either a verbal or physical nature. 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 Tennessee Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Jackson employers can be required to formulate company policies that specifically address sexual harassment in the workplace. These must be posted in a visible area such as a break room. Matters covered by such policies should include contact information used by employees to report incidents, handling procedures for claims, and corrective measures (in the event that a claim turns out to be successful).

There are also agencies which are established by federal and Tennessee 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 Jackson 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 Tennessee attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these issues to be overworked. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Jackson, as this may be the ideal way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Tennessee.
