Workplace harassment

State and federal laws prohibit harassment in the workplace. There are various types of harassment, including:

  • - Sexual harassment
  • - Harassment due to discrimination

If someone is harassing you in the workplace, you may experience discomfort and stress, and your performance may be affected. If a coworker is the harasser, take this up with your manager or human resources department first. However, if the harassment is coming from a manager, you may have a case against your employer.
