Inappropriate or unwanted behavior in the workplace

In our legal blog, we talk a lot about sexual harassment in the workplace. We do so because this kind of harassment can occur in many different forms. Our attorneys like to make sure that all workers in the Troy and Oakland areas of Michigan remain well-schooled about sexual harassment as a whole. This includes unwanted behaviors that make you feel uncomfortable or sexualized at work.

Even if you are uncertain as to whether or not these behaviors constitute sexual harassment, it is always important to investigate the matter deeply. Sexual harassment can feel difficult to define for most workers. Perhaps a superior simply leers at you when you walk by. Is this an example of harassment? It might be, but you will probably want to speak with a professional in the know to feel sure.

In another example, perhaps your boss or a co-worker constantly talks about sex, genitalia or prior sexual encounters. Even though this talk may not be focused on a sexual encounter between you and the other worker, it could still be considered sexual harassment. After all, when you are in your place of employment, everyone's main focus should be the work at hand. Many find it difficult to perform as expected in a sexualized work environment.

To sum up, we simply want you to know that any unwanted or inappropriate behaviors at work should be dealt with. If your employer fails to correct the situation, consulting with an employment attorney is often the logical next step.
