Something is terribly wrong on your job. At first, you thought it was your imagination, but now you’re realizing that you may be a victim of sexual harassment. You have never viewed yourself as a victim—you always assumed that other people become victims.

You feel that you have been a subject of sexual harassment on your job. You are not certain if you are protected by law against the behavior you are experiencing or witnessing on the job or at the hands of your employer.

According to the EEOC, sexual harassment includes unwelcome conduct that is based on your sex. Harassment becomes unlawful when 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. You should consult with legal counsel regarding your options on how best to deal with the situation.
