Sexual Harassment and Requests For Dates
Complex cases require an experienced Salt Lake City harassment attorney
When a co-worker repeatedly asks you out for dates at work, you could have grounds for a sexual harassment case. This especially true if the person who asked you out on a date – perhaps only one time – is your supervisor at work. That’s why it’s important to talk to an experienced, Utah sexual harassment lawyer to learn more about your legal rights.
For more than three decades, the Andrus Law Firm of Salt Lake City has been helping people dealing with harassment cases. Attorney Randy M. Andrus and his legal team – including his wife, Cynthia – know the law and understand how the legal system works here. That’s why we have such a strong track record of success. Case results matter here.
Understanding harassment cases involving requests for dates
If someone at work asks you out on a date, that might not seem like sexual harassment to some people. The reality is that requests for dates at work often constitutes sexual harassment. Reasons why include:
- You have repeatedly told your co-worker you are not interested in dating him or her.
- The person asking you out on a date is your supervisor or boss.
- The person asking you out is your supervisor, who threatened you if you say no.
- The person who asked you out is your supervisor and they retaliated against you for saying no. Ways in which your supervisor could retaliate against you include:
- Wrongfully terminating you
- Demoting you at work
- Transferring you to another department
- Denying your request for a raise
You have the right to work without being sexually harassed on the job. That includes the right to say no to a co-worker or supervisor who asks you out on a date. If they can’t respect your rights and continue to harass you, they should be held accountable for their actions. That’s why we want to meet with you.

Don’t underestimate the complexity of your legal case. The person who asked you out on a date at work might deny doing so. Or they might try to claim that you were the one pursuing a relationship with them. Worst of all, your employer might hire an attorney to defend the other person’s actions, especially if they’re your supervisor.
