Sexual harassment is a serious crime and though many of its victims try to ignore it, this is never the best solution.

Both males and females may be guilty of committing sexual harassment; therefore you should never overlook a sexual harassment incident due to someone’s gender.

There are certain steps to take if you have been sexually harassed.

Of course, the first step is to tell the abuser to stop the behavior. (But, often this does not work and the victim is in a more difficult situation after the confrontation.)

If you are being sexually harassed at work, tell your supervisor immediately. Take the proper steps for reporting the incident, as this may play a vital role in whether or not you will have a legitimate court case.

Keep detailed records of each incident, including dates, times, places and witnesses.

Contact an attorney and schedule a consultation to determine the best action to take.
