An employer has a responsibility to provide a safe workplace for its employees, which is impossible where sexual harassment is present. Sexual harassment comes in many forms, but always consists of “unwelcome” conduct that a reasonable person would consider “severe and pervasive.”
This form of harassment often consists of sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sometimes sexual harassment culminates in a quid pro quo exchange, where an employer or supervisor makes an unwelcome request for sexual favors in exchange for job benefits or withholding unfavorable action.
Other times, the unwelcome sexual conduct makes an employee so miserable, he/she becomes the victim of a hostile work environment.
Either way, sex harassment is against the law. To seek money damages and other relief, you need an attorney to assist you.
Lawsuits and Claims for Sexual Harassment
In addition to the supervisor perpetrating the harassment, you may have a viable claim or lawsuit for sexual harassment against your employer. If you have reported the harassment to someone higher up in your company and nothing has been done to remedy the problem, your company may be liable for failing to keep you safe at work.
Sexual harassment is demeaning and abusive and is taken seriously under Montana law. Your case could be worth money damages or other compensation based on what happened to you at work.
