- 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.
