- Alabama does not have a distinct anti-harassment statute. See Alabama State Harassment Protection.
- Alabama law offers some additional forms of anti-harassment protection which may be used separately or in addition to the traditional federal protection such as claims for invasion of privacy, battery and outrage. See Alabama State Harassment Protection.
- Even if an employer is not the actual perpetrator of harassment, there are a number of claims whereby an employer may be liable for the actions of an employee. See Employer Liability.
