Workers in Georgia face illegal harassment far too often. Employers should not allow it to continue.
If you have been the victim of illegal harassment in the workplace, you could be eligible to receive compensation or other legal relief. The best way to learn about your options for protecting your rights is to talk to a Georgia harassment lawyer.
What is Illegal Harassment in Georgia?
Illegal harassment might include harmful words or actions connected with someone’s sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, age, or other factors protected by law. Hurtful jokes, name-calling, and insults are all examples of things that can create an illegally hostile work environment when they are allowed regularly. Posting offensive cartoons can be considered illegal harassment if the cartoon references a protected personal characteristic.
Suffering harassment is a devastating experience that can affect your professional and personal life.

Harassment can be characterized as illegal when you are required to put up with it to keep your job or when it is so pervasive that it creates an intolerable environment. It can be helpful to keep a diary recording when incidents occurred, how people reacted, and how you felt as a result, to demonstrate the severity of harassment in the workplace.
