How are you being harassed at work?
There are two types of sexual harassment. Quid pro Quo harassment (this for that) and hostile work environment harassment. Our firm has extensive experience representing employees in both types of sexual harassment claims.
Quid pro Quo harassment refers to situations when an employment decision, like promotion or termination, is based on the employee's acceptance or rejection of sexual advances or requests for sexual favors. An example of this type of harassment include a supervisor who demotes an employee for rejecting his request for sexual favors. This is just one example, there are many others.
Hostile work environment harassment results from the unwelcome conduct of supervisors or co-workers, or anyone else with whom the employee interacts on the job. In a hostile work environment, the unwelcome conduct renders the workplace atmosphere intimidating, hostile, or offensive. Examples of this harassment include:
- Someone at work repeatedly makes sexually suggestive comments to you or in your presence.
- Someone at work keeps pressuring you to engage in unwanted sexual activity.
- Someone at work shows you sexually explicit photographs or pornographic videos.
These are just a few examples of conduct that may rise to the level of an unlawful hostile work environment. Many more exist.
