The laws of Utah define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including actions of either a verbal or physical nature. 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 Utah Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?
First, employers in Santaquin are often required to formulate 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 policies, 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 formed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Santaquin work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Also, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.

It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these issues to be overworked. Because of this, working with a Santaquin attorney may be the ideal way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
