What should I do if I was sexually harassed during a job interview?

Contact our law firm as soon as possible. We can explain all the legal options available to you and which one makes the most sense for your specific circumstances. It’s also important to talk to us soon after you were sexually harassed during your job interview for several reasons. One, your memory of the event will be fresh in your mind. Two, there’s often a deadline (known as the statute of limitations) for taking legal action in such cases in Utah. Three, the person who sexually harassed you may have already hired a lawyer to defend their actions. We can help you level the playing field and fight to hold your harasser accountable.

Who investigates complaints involving harassment during the hiring process in Utah?

In general, two government agencies investigate work-related harassment complaints – the Utah Antidiscrimination and Labor Division (UALD) or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Deciding who to file your complaint with can be a difficult decision. That’s why we want to meet with you. After you explain to us what happened to you, we can suggest how best to proceed. Our advice is based on years of experience and everything you discuss with us during your free consultation will remain private and confidential.

Can I file a lawsuit against a company for harassing me during the hiring process?

Yes. However, the process for filing a harassment lawsuit against a company can be very complicated. Before you can officially file a lawsuit, you will first need approval from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to do so. Cases involving discrimination during the hiring process can be challenging since the person who sexually harassed you during your job interview will likely deny doing anything wrong. We can work with you and help set the record straight.
