    How Labor Laws Protect You from Harassment

    You also cannot be harassed in the workplace. Harassment comes in several forms:

    • Sexual harassment
    • Verbal bullying
    • Threats of violence
    • Hate speech
    • Online bullying

    Sexual harassment includes unwanted comments or advances, touching, expectation of “favors,” and negative job actions or wrongful termination because of your refusal of advances.

    A sexual harassment claim can include showing that your work environment is not only hostile, but an extreme, intolerable situation that nobody can be expected to endure.

    Verbal bullying includes name-calling, insults, or comments related to your age, sex (including sexual orientation), race, pregnancy, religion, disability, national origin, or military veteran status.

    Hate speech targets your personal identity. And online bullying is any of the above when it happens on social media or elsewhere in the internet.

    These situations are hard, but you don’t have to just quietly let it go.

    Let our employment lawyers help you demand fairness and restitution, so you can put this episode behind you.
