Are Sexual Harassment Complaints Confidential?

Southern California Sexual Harassment Lawyers

If you have been the victim of sexual harassment at work, you may be leery of filing a formal complaint within the organization for privacy reasons. Confidentiality is a legitimate concern. You may fear the repercussions of making such a complaint, such as creating further hostility from the offender, other co-workers, or your supervisor. You are protected under law, however, from retaliation for making a complaint about sexual harassment or for participating in an investigation concerning it.

In most organizations, confidentiality in these matters is supposed to be maintained. Sometimes, however, it cannot be guaranteed. In making a workplace sexual harassment complaint, an investigation into your claim may be conducted by the proper staff which may unintentionally compromise your confidentiality. The offender may need to be interviewed as well as other witnesses.

In understanding your options at work, you should discuss the matter with an appropriate staff member who can answer your questions and advise you on the policies and practices that your organization uses in these situations. It is, however, imperative that your harasser understands that you do not welcome his or her behavior with clear and prompt action on your part. It is also a must to let your employer know that the situation exists so that it can be corrected organizationally.
