It is normal these days for children to find part-time jobs in their free moments. Unfortunately, underage employees do not escape sexual harassment in the workplace, and many have come forward as victims in recent years. Unfortunately, many more underage employees remain silent and keep it to themselves because they don’t know what to do or fear the repercussions.
Seeking legal help should always be one of the first things you do. Meeting with an attorney automatically creates Attorney-Client jurisdiction. This means that everything you say to your lawyer remains strictly confidential and is protected by law. You will never have to worry about someone finding out if you ultimately decide not to resort to any legal recourse. However, speaking with an attorney and knowing your rights is possibly one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself. Where to go?
If you are or have been a victim of sexual harassment, in the state of Nevada you have 300 days from the date of the alleged harm to file a sexual harassment charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against an employer of 15 or more employees. This means the clock is ticking and it is more important than ever to seek legal help and advice.
