Sexual Harassment and Sexist Behavior and Words
Serious legal cases require an experienced Salt Lake City harassment lawyer
Thanks to the #MeToo movement, most people now realize that sexist behavior and comments in the workplace constitute sexual harassment. Some people still don’t get it. Some people think it’s okay to make sexist comments or insults to you or other co-workers – and think they can get away with it.
That’s where we come in. At the Andrus Law Firm in Salt Lake City, we have dedicated our careers to standing up for the rights of people who have been sexually harassed at work throughout Utah. Salt Lake City sexual harassment attorney Randy M. Andrus knows the law, understands the legal system and can work with you to develop a successful legal strategy.
Types of harassment involving sexist behavior and words
Sexist comments and sexist behavior in the workplace can cover a wide range. Some of the most common – and most offensive – examples of sexual harassment involving sexist behavior or comments include:
- Constantly commenting on your physical appearance in a sexual way
- Commenting at work on your sex life or sexual orientation
- Constantly asking questions about your private sex life
- Making derogatory comments about your gender
- Excluding you from company meetings or functions based on your gender
Sexist comments and behavior on the job can create a hostile work environment. When this occurs, it’s critical that you take legal action to defend your rights and hold your harasser accountable for his or her actions.
Talk privately with a Utah harassment attorney who respects your rights
Legal cases involving people who make sexist comments or behave in a sexist manner at work can be complicated for many reasons. The person harassing you might deny doing anything wrong. Or they might claim they were just joking around and that it’s “all in your head.” Worst of all, your employer might hire an attorney to defend the actions of the person harassing you.
That’s not right. That’s why we want to meet with you and help you hold your harasser – and perhaps even your employer – accountable for their actions. We also understand the sensitive nature of these cases. That’s why you can meet with us for free and discuss your case in private. Everything you share with us will remain confidential.
