Sexual harassment in any form is illegal and unacceptable. If you have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, you are not alone.

What is sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of illegal discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment in the workplace: unwelcome sexual advances, or verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.

Examples of harassment can range from overt to subtle behavior, and may include:

  • Sexual assault/unwelcome physical touching of a sexual nature
  • Promotion or hiring in exchange for sexual acts (“quid pro quo”)
  • Visual harassment by displaying sexually explicit objects or images
  • Pattern of verbal abuse by sexually offensive comments and degrading language
  • Making sexual advances or propositions, physically or verbally
  • Making gender-related comments about a person’s appearance or mannerisms
  • Bullying someone using gender-related comments

 

Everyone is entitled to a safe work environment, free from sexual intimidation. We can help you understand your rights and help you determine what to do next.

What Should I Do if I’m Experiencing Sexual Harassment?

First, know that you do not have to tolerate unwanted sexual advances or a hostile work environment. Report the situation to your supervisor or human resources department and keep a detailed record of all communication.

If attempts to resolve the issue are unsuccessful or if your employer does nothing to help you, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against your employer. An experienced attorney will be able to guide you through the next steps of the process and protect your legal rights.

If you are being sexually harassed and are unsure what to do about it, contact an experienced sexual harassment lawyer today.
