What Should I Do After I Leave My Job Due to Sexual Harassment?

November 12th, 2019

Leaving one job for another tends to present unique challenges for a worker. These challenges are intensified for victims who left their job due to sexual harassment. Many victims are unsure how to find a job following harassment. This is especially true if the sexual harassment case tarnished the relationship with their employer. Therefore, it is important for victims to take steps to find a suitable company.

Finding a Suitable Company

The first concern for victims is often ensuring that their new job will not lead to new harassment. To find a job with a positive company culture, it is important for the victim to research the job before sending an application. There are a few ways to effectively research a job. Glassdoor is a website that allows workers to rate their experience at a job. This website reveals what it is like to work at a company. It often gives a victim a taste of the company culture, as well as the benefits and disadvantages.

The Interview Process

Another important step in finding a job is the interview process. Interviews give victims an opportunity to ask specific questions relating to the organization’s culture. Some of these questions should also relate to the company’s policies on protecting workers from sexual assault. It is important to note that a victim should avoid being too personal about their experience. It is important to frame the questions in a general manner, instead of the victim’s specific case.

The interviewer might ask the victim why they decided to leave their previous job. In this case, it is important for a victim to be prepared. To satisfy the interviewer, the victim should give information about why they left without discussing the sexual harassment case itself.

What to Disclose

For many victims, it is difficult to avoid the topic of their sexual harassment case during an interview. The reason for doing so, however, is to avoid leaving a negative impression on the prospective employer. The victim is valid in their feelings, but it is best to keep the interview focused on the topic of work, instead of the negative things that happened at the old job.
