Quiet nondisclosure agreements to make claims of sexual harassment in the workplace go away are no longer the norm. Thanks in part to the "Me Too" movement, reports of sexual harassment are no longer ignored as they had been in the past. Women and men reporting unwanted sexual advances or threats of job loss if they do not put out for their boss are now being listened to. Gone are the days of snubbing these important claims. "Zero tolerance" for sexual harassment is the law, but sexual harassment is still occurring.
While the actual figures vary, various sources report more women than men are experiencing sexual harassment at work.

Now Is the Time to Work Toward Complete Change
You do not have to cope with sexual harassment or lose your job. If you are experiencing sexual harassment - or see it occur to someone else at your workplace - report it. Most employers must meet federal requirements to provide employees information on their sexual harassment policies and procedures for reporting it.
Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination. Verbal or physical abuse that is essentially discriminating against a person's sex is illegal. Keeping a written log of the incidences of offensive conduct can help prove your claim. Various incidences can amount to a hostile work environment or a person being treated differently than those of the opposite sex. Sexual harassment can be distressing to the point where a worker is no longer able to adequately complete work assignments or feels compelled to quit the job altogether. If your workplace has become hostile, contact an attorney to discuss your legal options for filing hostile environment sexual harassment claim.
