All Georgia employees regardless of gender, rank or job title are entitled to work in an environment free of unwanted sexual advances or hostility. Sadly, this is not always the case. Despite most organizations educating employees about what constitutes as sexual harassment, every year numerous cases are still reported. If you feel like you are being sexual harassed at work or that you are forced to work in a hostile work environment with co-workers saying or doing things that generally make you uncomfortable, you may have a sexual harassment claim.
