Being the victim of sexual harassment can be a very troubling and emotional time for any man or woman. Unwanted sexual advances or remarks can make any working environment effectively unworkable. Most sexual harassment claims are advanced under one of two theories: (1) the sexual harassment has led to a hostile working environment or (2) the sexual harassment is quid pro quo harassment.
When sexual harassment leads to a hostile working environment, the following behavior(s) are usually demonstrated by the harasser:
- Inappropriate sexual contact or touching
- Verbal harassment such as sexual jokes or derogatory remarks
- Exposure to sexual or pornographic images
- Exposure to derogatory treatment based on gender
- Retaliation for reporting harassment
Quid pro quo harassment is a form of harassment that occurs when a co-worker, manager, or supervisor demands sexual favors in exchange for continued employment, a promotion, raise, bonuses, or refuge from disciplinary action or demotion.
We understand that most victims of sexual harassment decide not to report their case because they fear repercussions at work, rejection, and retaliation. Fortunately, there are many federal and state laws that provide protection to victims of sexual harassment.
