What does it mean to be a victim of sexual harassment at work?
It seems every day a different celebrity, judge, politician, business mogul or someone else in the public eye is confronted with allegations of sexual harassment or assault. Just this week saw allegations made public against Michigan Senator and former funnyman Al Franken, as well as multi-generational action hero actor Sylvester Stallone. They join the growing list Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Ben Affleck, George H. W. Bush, and many others.
Of course, you don’t have to be mingling with the rich and famous to be a victim of sexual harassment. Sexually harassing conduct is a problem that many men and women face every day throughout the country. Of course, a common place that sexual harassment may occur is where you spend most of your waking life: at work. Attorney Bruce Newman’s new article helps explain what constitutes “sexual harassment” under federal law and describes what you can do to fight sexual harassment in the workplace in Connecticut.
