We are committed to stopping sexual harassment in its tracks, and our Richmond employment lawyers have 60 years of experience fighting for Virginia’s workers.

If you have experienced any type of sexual harassment at work, here are a few steps you can take:

  • Make sure you clearly state that such conduct is unwanted and/or offensive. If any type of harassment should occur, make it known that the act was offensive.
  • Document what occurred. Keep any evidence (emails, documents, etc.) and take note of every incident, with the time and date. Detailed documentation can prove crucial later on.
  • Report it to your employer. Report sexual harassment to your employer’s HR department, your manager, or other appropriate party. Keep a record of this report.
  • Talk to an attorney. If your employer does nothing, delays in responding, or retaliates against you for reporting harassment, call a Richmond sexual harassment lawyer at LawrenceQueen. We can start working immediately to protect your rights.
