Harassment at Work is Common

Posted by Human Rights Advocacy Firm on June 25th, 2021

We were approached by a 37-year-old married woman, a mother of two children. Her co-worker was overly interested in her. He often did not call her by name, but "Honey" or "Sweetheart", while at work. Our client made comments to that co-worker, but he tried to present everything as a joke.

The final straw came when that co-worker put his hand on our client's knee during a meeting. Although he also turned it into a joke, the woman decided to consult with our lawyers.

The man always tried to present his actions as friendly, yet this behavior is not normal in the workplace. Having collected all the evidence and testimony of witnesses, we invited the client to write a complaint against that co-worker to her employer. The firm's regulations required a written statement describing all cases of alleged harassment. We drafted the necessary statement, supported it with the collected evidence, and handed it over to our client's boss.

The complaint was reviewed within two weeks. The abuser was not fired, but he was transferred to another branch at our insistence and flagged. Our client also received compensation for her mental suffering.

If you faced with the same discrimination at work, don’t wait any longer and contact our office.
