Sometimes doctors and dentists sexually harass nurses or technicians.
Even professionals – like lawyers, physicians, and dentists – are capable of sexual harassment. In fact, sometimes the power differential in those professions between the professionals and their staff helps create an environment ripe for sexual harassment – in spite of the professionals’ high education.
Sexual harassment – including comments, groping, assault, touching, and requests for sexual favors – is always wrong. And illegal – no matter who’s doing it.
You don’t have to be a victim – state and federal law protect nurses from sexual harassment at work.
Sexual harassment laws – including the Minnesota Human Rights Act and Title VII – don’t distinguish between doctors, lawyers, or anyone else: sexual harassment is illegal no matter how highly educated the perpetrator.
