Another way of confronting sexual harassment head-on is by having mediation proceedings. Traditional mediation, however, should be used with great care as this form is not always appropriate. First of all, ensure that mediator is has ample training and experience, you must have an objective for mediation and let the, describe in detail process to unfold. If you really do not want to see your harasser personally, then mediator may talk to you and your harasser separately, going back and forth.
Filing a formal complaint with your employer may also be another option if you feel that your problem was not taken seriously. But you must first know policies involved and how it operates. You might do this by asking someone who have also undergone such procedures. Inquire in advance in order that you and accused have same rights and access to information, time frames and length of time necessary to resolve problem. Confirm also some oral communications by writing by giving person who informed you with a written communication.
If these informal methods come to no avail, it may be time to want your harasser be punished by filing a lawsuit. Consult with an attorney that has experience in handling sexual harassment cases or Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Your state’s anti-discrimination agency might also be able to help you. -30-
