The following is a blog post regarding sexual harassment and wrongful termination. If you have been sexually harassed, you should contact law professionals such as Sexual Harassment Lawyers in San Bernardino for an immediate consultation.
Victims of sexual harassment might be hindered from reporting an incident because reporting the issue might require them to recall embarrassing or traumatizing memories.
In some cases, victims of sexual harassment also become victims of wrongful termination.
Consider the following case:
Say you are a young woman who works at a marketing firm. You are hard worker and you always get high marks on your performance reviews. One day, you think you are the last person at the office because you’re trying to meet a tight deadline. As you start to pack up, a male co-worker surprises you with his presence. He starts the conversation by asking how the project is going but then the conversation takes a sharp turn. Something snaps in your co-worker. He suddenly grabs you around the waist and confesses his deep, passionate love for you. As you stand there stunned, your co-worker continues by describing various sexual acts he wants to perform with you. You try to move around your co-worker but then he rips your button-up dress off and tackles you to the floor.
This is sexual harassment.
Now say that in the same situation, you report the incident to your boss. Your boss thinks you’re lying since your boss and your male co-worker are good buddies. He fires you on the spot for lying.
