How to File a Sexual Harassment Claim
If you have been sexually harassed at work, it’s important to make
it stop immediately. However, if you have complained to management but
conditions haven’t changed, alternatives are available to you.
The following are other ways to file a sexual harassment claim if incidents
continue to persist after initially reporting them at work:
File a Title VII EEOC Claim. Contact either the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a Texas
equal employment opportunity agency, or department of human rights. Your
claim must be in writing, stating the facts of your claim, and filed within
180 days of the harassment incident. Letter submission is available, while
agencies accept complaints by e-mail as well. The agency will contact
you for more information.
File a Title IX Complaint. If you are employed at a school, college or university which receives
federal funding, you are able to file a complaint with the United States
Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Title IX
of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 protects all intuitions receiving
any federal aid or assistance to both employees and students. The OCR
will then conduct an investigation into your claim. However, you may also
pursue your Tile IX complaint directly to court.
File a Sexual Assault and/or Abuse Claim. If your incident consists of unwarranted touching of the genitals or breasts
or threatened with physical sexual abuse or other violence, you may able
to pursue criminal charges.
