Sexual harassment is one of the top causes of retaliation

Sexual harassment in the working environment has been a big topic in the media over the last few years. The pervasiveness of sexual harassment in the workplace has come to light, and more people are now aware of how it is defined and how it should be reported. However, this does not mean that the problem has gone away.

Those who suffer sexual harassment in the workplace can use the law to protect themselves. It is possible to file a sexual harassment claim, and as a result, an investigation will be made. However, in addition to the initial occurrence of sexual harassment, the victim may also suffer from retaliation in addition.

What is retaliation?

Retaliation counts as any adverse action that a company takes against an employee for making a complaint or reporting an instance of sexual harassment or discrimination. It may also occur when a victim of sexual harassment rejects the perpetrator's offer. Victims of sexual harassment are protected from any form of retaliation; therefore, they can report the retaliatory actions individually.

What is an example of retaliation after an instance of sexual harassment?

Take, for example, an instance in which a boss asks an employee for a date in return for a promotion. This would be an example of sexual harassment. If they reject this offer and proceed to file a complaint, the boss may react by choosing to demote them. This is an example of retaliation.

You must stand up for your rights if you have been retaliated against after being a victim of sexual harassment. Tolerating such behavior could affect your mental health and your career.
