When you believe that you have been sexually harassed at work, it can be a frightening and traumatic experience. It is likely that you will confused about what to do, and you might also be worried about the security of your job if you decide to make a complaint.

Should I confront my harasser before taking action?

If you do not feel physically threatened and the harassment was only verbal, you might feel comfortable about approaching the person and telling them why you believe that their behavior was inappropriate.

If you do not feel comfortable with this however, or if the behavior that they initiated involved touching or overt sexual advances, then it is suggested that you to go straight to a manager to formally report what happened.

Make sure that a full documentation is made

It is important to write all the details down as soon as the incident or incidents occur. This is so that you have a coherent account if you decide to take the case to court in the future.

It is important to remember your rights when it comes to sexual harassment. Far too many incidents go unreported because the victim was afraid about coming forward or because they were unaware of their rights.
