When employees rebuff sexual harassment or advances, as is typically and understandably the case, they are unfortunately often faced with negative responses and even disciplinary action. This is particularly common when the sexual advance or activity comes from a superior.
These situations can be completely confusing and emotional. Many employees understandably worry that if they respond negatively, they will find themselves in financial jeopardy. In other cases, when they do complain, they may not complain to the correct party or entity. If and when an employee complains to a supervisor or to human resources, there is an obligation to correct the action.
Many times the issue is corrected in this last case. When it is not, the organization is liable for sexual harassment.
In many cases, however, an employee responds negatively and faces the threat of a negative career impact or even termination.
If you or someone close to you has been threatened after responding negatively to sexual advances, it is important to know that you have methods for recourse.
