What is the sexual harassment statute of limitations?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a federal matter and should be taken up with the EEOC, which can advise you. Details regarding dates and circumstances are crucial to determining a case regarding sexual harassment so take along any information you have. The EEOC representative can clarify the matter, which goes a long way to moving forward.

It depends on your state. They are usually pretty short. In some states you cannot even file if you no longer work at the company. I would look up that info for your specific state.

It depends on the state the charges were filed. Assuming personal injury lawsuit, it is 3 years for negligence and 2 years for intentional harm. If it is a case of libel/slander, the statute of limitations is 1 year.

I varies from state to state. I think the average is seven years or something like that, but some are as long as ten or fifteen years.

Depends on the state. Most sexual harassment claims must be filed within 180 days of the first report. It is usually best to contact legal counsel in whatever state you live in for verification.
