Workplace Sexual Harassment: What It Is and What Is Isn't
Sexual harassment is one of the most commonly misunderstood aspects of law. The law recognizes two different types of sexual harassment:
- Quid pro quo, in which an employer demands sexual favors in exchange for promotion or other job-related benefits.
- Hostile work environment, in which a workplace displays a hostile and pervasive pattern of inflicting sexually suggestive imagery, suggestions, gestures, etc. A few isolated incidents do not typically make for a valid sexual harassment case.
Most likely, you need to give your employer a chance to remedy sexually harassing behavior. Most employee manuals dictate internal process that employees must follow before filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against the employer.
For anyone who may have a sexual harassment case, it is vital to preserve as much evidence as possible. People often expect that their coworkers will step forward to testify, and then are disappointed to see people refuse to testify because they are afraid doing so will jeopardizing their jobs.
