Proving a sexual harassment claim in a courtroom to a judge or a jury requires evidence of the harassment. Such evidence may be in the form of witness testimony and documents. You should begin the evidence gathering process immediately. Evidence can include personal observations and recollections, facebook posts, text messages, email messages, instant messages, photographs, phone records, medical and therapy records, disciplinary records, and voice mail messages.
Not only is sexual harassment illegal. The law also prohibits:
- Racial harassment
- Religious harassment
- Age-based harassment
- Harassment based on disability
- Harassment based on ethnicity or national origin
