Be sure to write down every act or statement, even if it is from somebody different. Doing this will help you demonstrate that the harassment practices in your workplace are accepted and not imagined by yourself. Recording all of these incidents as they occur can also go a long way toward showing that your feelings of being offended are legitimate.
Bringing up a workplace harassment claim to the person who is causing you discomfort can be intimidating. However, it’s essential that you make it understood that their behavior is not acceptable and must come to an end. If your harasser doesn’t cease with their actions, then legal action may need to be taken afterward – but only once you have tried addressing the issue directly first. Speak out about how what they said or did has hurt or threatened you; demand them to stop so no further harm will occur in the future.
By using email to document difficult conversations in the workplace, you can avoid verbal confrontation and have a written record of proof that your requests were made known. Don’t forget to save any replies for further evidence when filing your claim; copy these emails into the list of incidents presented with it. This way, if needed, you’ll be able to demonstrate that all necessary steps were taken prior to raising an official complaint.
Then, choose the most suitable place to alert you of the harassment. If you have a positive relationship with your boss or supervisor, first tell them about the offense. Or if that doesn’t feel right for you, contact Human Resources and make an appointment for a meeting — no need to give away any information at this point if you rather stay discreet. The majority of organizations already possess specific processes designed specifically for discrimination and offensive behavior claims like these ones.
Allow your company or workplace enough time to receive your complaint and act upon it. Then, if you are unsatisfied with the way your employer has handled your complaint, or the behaviors do not stop, you may wish to contact an employment attorney.
Once an employment lawyer is involved, they will file a formal claim of workplace harassment or discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC will begin an investigation of the employer and will examine the entire record from the conduct itself, including the context, to the histories of the victim, the harassers, and how the employer handled any initial complaints. Based on this investigation, the EEOC will determine if the harassment is considered severe enough to be illegal and if the employer can be held liable.
