Retaliation is when someone in authority punishes you because you complained about sexual harassment initiated by them or someone else. You may have already suffered retaliation. For example, maybe you suffered a pay cut, were denied a promotion or fired because you refused a date, sexual favor request, or other sexual advance. All of these are examples of retaliation.
Hostile Work Environment
Often, a refused sexual advance creates a hostile work environment. When you feel intimidated, ignored, or abused in your workplace in the aftermath of a sexual harassment claim, that’s adding further injury, worthy of additional compensation. Examples include being threatened verbally or in written form, receiving unwanted memes or other abusive material, sexual jokes, and being left out of participation in essential activities related to your job.
If your company has a policy or procedure for dealing with sexual harassment, follow it. Following the rules will also be helpful in your case. Ensure you keep a record of when the incident happened, who was involved, and who witnessed it. Speak out and make it known that sexual harassment is unacceptable and that you do not want it to continue. Workers and applicants are protected from sexual harassment in all employment decisions, whether in recruitment, dismissal, benefits, training, remuneration, promotions, or other employment matters.
