Sexual harassment is a serious violation of an employee’s rights in the workplace. If you are experiencing sexual harassment at work, you should contact an attorney immediately to insure that the harassment will stop. Sexual harassment can take many forms. According to Minnesota law, “Sexual harassment” includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, sexually motivated physical contact or other verbal or physical conduct or communication of a sexual nature when:

  • Submission to that conduct or communication is made a term or condition, either explicitly or implicitly, of obtaining employment, public accommodations or public services, education, or housing;
  • Submission to or rejection of that conduct or communication by an individual is used as a factor in decisions affecting that individual’s employment, public accommodations or public services, education, or housing; or
  • That conduct or communication has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual’s employment, public accommodations or public services, education, or housing, or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive employment, public accommodations, public services, educational, or housing environment.

If any of these descriptions apply to you or you are unsure if they do, contacting an attorney to discuss your rights and what you should do to protect them is the first step to take.
