Being Harassed? Here's What You Need to Do.
To be considered illegal under the law, sexual harassment must be unwelcome, severe or pervasive. An employee subjected to any of this conduct should tell the harasser to stop such behavior, and then report the harassment to her employer consistent with the policies contained in the company handbook. If the harassment is coming from a supervisor or owner of a company, the employee should still tell the harasser to stop and do his or her best to document the harassment and the employee's attempt to end the harassment. In addition, an employee should contact an attorney to make sure that all of his or her rights are protected.
