Sexual harassment is on the rise in workplaces across the country. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), there were more than 26,027 formally lodged cases in 2014.
When you are the victim of sexual harassment at the workplace, there is no harder or stressful decision to make other than deciding that you will no longer take the abuse. Employers have not only a responsibility to maintain a workplace that is free from sexual harassment, but a legal obligation to do so.
