1 Answer | Asked in Sexual Harassment for New Jersey on
Q: My supervisor has been making lewd comments whenever the two of us are alone at work together.

It's gotten to the point where I can't concentrate or do my work as well as I used to. I want to file a claim for sexual harassment but I'm just an intern and don't get paid. Is there anything I can do? I don't want to get fired, just want to be left alone to do my job.
