Do you know what to do if you've been sexually harassed at work?

"Hey, baby, give me a smile." In some situations, that line might be welcome as well-intended encouragement. If it comes from an unwanted source at work, it could be considered sexual harassment. Inappropriate invitations and gifts or incessant hounding to go on a date, even after you've repeatedly said no, could also be harassment.

Discrimination and retaliation often go hand in hand

Disability is a protected class under the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. This protects disabled workers from discrimination. Unless the employee is unable to perform an essential job function, accommodations should be made to fit the worker's situation. It's not always the case, though. Sometimes a disabled employee will make a claim or request assistance, only to be denied and then punished for their action. All too often, discrimination claims become retaliation claims.
