The laws of Utah define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including acts of either a verbal or physical nature. Frequent 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 Utah Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?
First, employers in Price are often required to implement company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. 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.
The laws of the state of Utah and federal law have both appointed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Price work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Furthermore, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.
How can a Utah attorney help?
Investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim might be difficult without consulting someone with expertise in the relevant laws. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these matters to be overworked. Because of this, working with a Price attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
