What to do when you are being sexually harassed at work (verbally)

Short list of important steps to protect the rights of the sexually harassed

First steps

1) Make it clear to the harasser that you are not interested. 2) Immediately complain verbally and in writing to the harasser's supervisor, your supervisor, and/or the HR department if one exists. 3) Follow-up to make sure something is done: employers are required to investigate under California law. 4) Keep any documentation you have and make a list of witnesses.

If the harassment continues

5) Tell harasser that he/she must stop. 6) Immediately complain again verbally and in writing to the harasser's supervisor, your supervisor, and/or the HR department if one exists. 7) Contact, and if necessary hire, an experienced and dedicated employment lawyer. 8) Let the attorney take care of the rest.
