Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
Is there a specific question with which I could assist?
What was the basis for the harassment? Not all harassment is illegal, just harassment because you are a member of a protected group (ex. age, gender, sexual, disability, etc.)
If the basis of the harassment is your gender and that can be proven then yes, you would have a case. You would first need to file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC, you can find the closest office at www.eeoc.gov. The EEOC will then investigate and either pursue the matter for you or send you a "right to sue" letter which means you can then file a lawsuit. If you don't file with the EEOC then you will not be able to pursue the case since you will have "failed to exhaust all administrative remedies".
