Signs of sexual harassment for victims and harassers

If you're trying to keep an eye out for sexual harassment in the workplace, it can be a bit harder to identify it these days. Most people understand that it's illegal and that there are ramifications. That doesn't mean it won't happen, but they may try harder to hide it or to disguise it as something else.

To help you see what's happening, here are some signs that a person is being harassed:

  • They start missing shifts and failing to show up for work more often.
  • Employee turnover rates increase as people leave for new jobs.
  • They can't seem to focus on the task at hand.
  • They seem to have a low opinion of the job and low employee morale overall.
  • They wear clothes that cover up the physical signs of harassment.

You also want to look for red flags that someone may be more likely to harass others. These can include:

  • They abuse alcohol and other drugs, often showing up to work while under the influence.
  • They have a violent personality and aggressive tendencies.
  • They find it hard to make eye contact.
  • They often talk about things that are set up to make others feel intimidated, such as talking about firearms and other weapons that they own. Naturally, keeping these weapons in the car or even bringing them to the workplace is a massive red flag -- and may very well be illegal.

Have you been sexually harassed on the job? Not only do you want to know what it looks like these days, but you also want to know what legal steps you can take to protect yourself.
