Have you ever experienced Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Laws are intended to protect employees from unwanted sexual advances in the work environment, however, sexual harassment is widespread in the American workplace. Thousands of people, both women and men, are affected every day at the workplace. A person should be able to feel comfortable and safe at work. Many times, an employee does not have the means to give up their job due to financial reasons.
