Workplaces are dynamic and complex places. Coworkers may work with one another, argue with one another, and… sometimes… fall in love with one another. Office romances can be complicated and, even if they are mutually consensual, they still can have sexual harassment interwoven into them. If you’ve found yourself embroiled in a situation like that, don’t make the mistake of thinking that you cannot possibly win a sexual harassment case. Instead, get in touch with a New Jersey sexual harassment lawyer and find out what your options really are.
A recent sexual harassment case from here in North Jersey is an example of what we mean.
K.B. was an administrative worker at a hospital in Bergen County. In 2016, the employer promoted her to office manager and assigned her to work for A.H., a doctor of internal medicine. The manager and the doctor engaged in a mutually consensual romantic affair.
