Sexual Harassment In The Federal Sector Workplace
Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination, which is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Thus federal employees can bring harassment claims through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Sexual harassment is also a violation of the Merit System Principles which specifically protect federal government employees from mistreatment, discrimination or reprisal. Thus federal workers can file sexual harassment complaints through the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) as well as the EEOC.
Our knowledgeable and compassionate lawyers will help you report harassment, document the offensive behavior, and follow through if management fails to take appropriate action or retaliates. Sexual harassment takes many forms, including:
- Unwelcome sexual advances
- Demands for sex in exchange for favors or keeping your job
- Sexually explicit jokes, pictures or conversation
- Suggestive or offensive comments about your body
- Stalking behavior
- Sexual touching or sexual assault
- Other behavior creating a hostile work environment
We can help you report harassment to your supervisor, HR or management. What happens next will dictate your next steps and your legal remedies. Whether you stay or leave, you may be entitled to compensatory damages for the emotional distress and any negative impact on your federal employment.
