Standing Up Against Workplace Harassment
Not only can harassment and hostility in the workplace negatively impact your ability to perform your job duties, but it also adds significant stress to your everyday life. You should feel safe and respected at work; protected from unwelcome comments or conduct, and safe from threats.

Harassment Can Vary, But It Is Always Serious
Harassment can take many forms, ranging from subtle behaviors to outright physical abuse. To recognize harassment in your own life, it’s important to understand the various forms harassment may take. Such forms include:
- Offensive remarks or jokes
- Intimidation or threats
- Physical assaults
- Slurs, insults, or put-downs
- Offensive photos, videos, or postings
- Ridicule or mockery
These harmful actions may be based on the victim’s race, gender, age, ethnicity, color, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, and other protected classes. If you believe you a victim of harassment, you should:
- Report it to your supervisor and/or someone in human resources
- Document your experience by writing down details of what happened and when
- Keep records of the events, including text, email, and voice messages and social media postings
- Talk to others who may have witnessed the harassment
Wherever you are in the reporting or documenting process, it is of utmost importance that you seek legal representation. Attorney Laura Lindner has over 27 years of experience in employment litigation. Our team is well-prepared to help.
