opportunities in your career/job that may be important to you? (Note: retaliation for filing a claim is illegal, but many companies and managers subversively engage in the practice. Many victims of sexual harassment openly state that the retaliation they experienced after filing a claim was more severe than the actual harassment). Yes/No 6. Do you have any witnesses or other people who would be willing to stand with you and even potentially jointly file the claim with you? Yes/No 7. Are there others in the company you know of who have filed claims? Yes/No If someone did file a claim, is that person/people still with the company? If the answer to this is “no” then you cannot count question 7 as a “yes”. This means the people who filed had to leave the company for some reason after doing so.

If you answered “yes” to numbers 1, 3, 4 and 5, you can consider moving forward. If you answered “yes” to numbers 2, 6 and 7 in addition to the others, your case is that much stronger and safer. (Please note: even if you answered “yes” to all seven, there is no assurance of 100 percent safety. Every company is different, and every claim is different. Answering “yes” to all of these questions is not an assurance of a positive outcome for the accuser. These questions are merely designed to make the process safer for the individual considering filing a formal sexual harassment claim with their employer).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
