Sexual harassment claim by police captain is expanded

For workers in Rhode Island, the idea of being a victim of harassment might seem like a foreign issue that no longer happens. Unfortunately, problems with sexual harassment occur all too frequently. Even those whose jobs are designed to serve the public good and know how to defend themselves against dangers are not immune. Regardless of the circumstances, those who are being victimized need to be aware that they have rights. Considering a sexual harassment claim can serve multiple purposes including making the harassment stop and being compensated for the treatment.

Workers have protections against unlawful retaliation

Employers are not permitted to retaliate against their employees in any way. Protections are in place for workers to keep their jobs safe from workplace retaliation. State and federal laws provide protections for workers against retaliation in the workplace. Workers who have brought a claim for sexual harassment, discrimination or have acted as a whistleblower, and in some other instances, cannot be retaliated against and may have legal remedies to consider if they are.
