If you’ve experienced sexual harassment at work you may be able to do something about it. You don’t need to have previously objected to something for it to be unwanted.

It is clearly not acceptable and can have a huge impact, not just on your ability to do your job, but also on your private and personal life and self esteem.

At Lexadeen, we believe that we can act quickly and decisively to help prevent you from further distress and suffering. Our friendly and hard working solicitors have over 20 year’s experience in dealing with sexual harassment cases and are here to help.

Sexual harassment at work can include:

  • Sexual comments or jokes
  • Physical behaviour, including unwelcome sexual advances, touching etc
  • Displaying pictures, photos or drawings of a sexual nature
  • sending emails with a sexual content.

The law says it’s only sexual harassment where the behaviour is meant to or has the effect of either:

  • Violating your dignity, or
  • Creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.

Law Against Sexual Harassment

If you’re treated badly or less favourably because of your reaction to sexual harassment, you may have a claim under the Equality Act. The Act says this is also harassment. The law against sexual harassment protects you from your employer, colleagues and from third parties such as clients or customers. Sexual harassment could be a one-off incident or a series of events, and it could be deliberate, or unintended.

Sexual Harassment Compensation Claim

Employment tribunals treat sexual harassment in the workplace cases very seriously, and awards in such cases can be very high.

Under the Equality Act for sexual harassment, there is no minimum period of employment necessary for you to be eligible to make a claim, but there are strict rules on when such a claim needs to be submitted by.

Where possible, you should in the first instance raise a formal grievance with your employer to see whether the issue can be resolved internally. However, in some cases this is problematic and difficult (especially if you are being harassed by a senior employee/director or HR staff) and it is therefore important that you seek expert advice as soon as possible.
