What is workplace harassment in New Jersey?

  • Slurs
  • Offensive jokes
  • Threats
  • Other behavior that created a truly hostile work environment

If you are unsure about whether or not the behavior you are facing is considered harassment, our firm can help you.

What should I do if I believe I am being harassed?

If you believe that you are being harassed, there are several different important measures you should take including the following:

  • Notify your employer
  • Inform the HR department.
  • Make sure to keep copies of records showing that you attempted to notify someone about the harassment.
  • Take screenshots of any emails or texts that document the harassment.
  • Document the harassment. If you are able, take photos and videos of the harassment you are being subjected to. This can be extremely important when it comes to a workplace harassment case.
  • Keep a detailed log. Write down each instance of harassment, the date it occurred, what was said or done, etc.
