Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Spanish Fork, UT

The laws of Utah define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including actions 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 Spanish Fork 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 Spanish Fork work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. These laws also prohibit employers from firing employees or taking any retaliatory action against workers who have complained of sexual harassment.

How can a Utah attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. The federal agencies that handle initial claims of sexual harassment are frequently understaffed and overworked. Therefore, hiring a lawyer in Spanish Fork may be the ideal way to ensure that your claim is filed within the deadlines specified by Utah for sexual harassment matters.
