Sexual Harassment At Work
Harassment can take on many forms in the workplace, such as offensive conduct and behavior toward an employee that is sexual in nature. Offensive comments that are made regarding someone’s sex can also amount to harassment. This unwelcomed conduct rises to the level of sexual harassment when it creates a hostile or abusive work environment, or when someone’s employment is threatened or negatively impacted by the conduct.
Common Workplace Sexual Harassment Scenarios
As mentioned above, sexual harassment in the workplace can occur in many different ways, including in the following common scenarios:
- An employee’s continued employment is conditioned on engaging in a sexual relationship with a superior.
- An employee is passed over for a promotion because he or she turned down sexual advances.
- An employee experiences unwanted requests for sexual favors or inappropriate touching.
- An employee is promised workplace advancement in exchange for sexual favors.
- An employee is subjected to disparaging remarks or unequal treatment based on his or her gender.
Employees are often afraid to report sexual harassment because they believe that it might affect their employment status, or that their employment conditions will be negatively impacted. Employees have a right to report harassment, and employers are prohibited from punishing them in return. If you have been demoted, wrongfully terminated, or experienced other negative job-related impacts for exercising your legal right to report sexual harassment, you may have a retaliation claim.
