When you are a victim of sexual harassment at work, it’s common to believe that your boss is too powerful to make pursuing a sexual harassment case worthwhile.
However, this is not the case. The law is on your side. Here in the Louisville, Kentucky area, a government employee recently successfully sued the Louisville Metro Government for sexual harassment, and was awarded $300,000.
A good national example is the recent news story regarding a sexual harassment case against the former CEO of Hewlett Packard. In that particular case, a consultant was brought on, ostensibly to help with event planning for the multinational corporation. However, according to the consultant, it quickly became apparent that she was expected to have a sexual relationship with her boss.
While it can be intimidating to take action against your supervisor, keep in mind that successful sexual harassment suits have been filed against CEOs of extremely large corporations with tremendous resources at their disposal.
