Cherry Hill, NJ asked in Sexual Harassment for New Jersey

Q: I was touched innapropriately and verbally abused at work. I told my bosses over four times and nothing changed.

It happened almost everyday. It is happening to other girls too at work. We will cry and cry to the bosses to make a change but they do nothing. Is this considered a case to come forward with. Because there is no physical evidence, just us girls, the delivery drivers, and the bosses know about it.

A: Yes, you should pursue the harassment with an experienced New Jersey employment lawyer. Your complaint could be corroborated by co-workers, and other victims of the harassment. Coming forward with a formal complaint can force your employer to do a documented investigation. In these times of "me too" there is no reason to silently endure offensive sexual harassment!

Best,
