I am a 45 yr old female working in the building industry. I've been working for my current employer for 14 yrs. I am required to hand out " girly" calendars every year at the beginning of the year to customers. The calendars are of girls in bathing suits and digestive posses. I've expressed handing the calendars out make me feel uncomfortable. I'm told yo get over it, it's not a big deal and to just hand them out. While delivering these calendars I get comments like, " what month is your picture in?" Do I have a case for filing a sexual harassment case?

Hello and thank you for your question. This is certainly an uncomfortable situation and a difficult one. if the requirement to hand out the calendars is not one that is required of males in similar jobs as yours with the employer, there is certainly a high probability that you have a case of discrimination. This seems your best approach if you wish to pursue a case against your employer as it shows gender discrimination. I hope this helps and ask for your positive rating.
