Types of Workplace Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can take on many forms that don't necessarily involve physical contact. For example, unwanted comments about an individual's sex life, sexual orientation, their physical appearance, etc., constitutes sexual harassment. In the workplace, there are two common types of sexual harassment. The first is known as quid pro quo harassment. This is a situation that may be a one-time occurrence or involve repeated behavior that requires one person to tolerate some form of sexual harassment in order to get a job, keep a job, get a raise or promotion, or to receive some other benefit. This harassment can come from a prospective employer, a current employer, a manager or supervisor, or a co-worker.

The second situation that gives rise to sexual harassment claims is a hostile work environment. Hostile work environments involve repeated behaviors that are abusive or offensive, or that interfere or alter a victim's ability to perform their job. Employers that foster or otherwise allow these conditions to continue can be found liable for the conduct of the offending employees.

In either situation, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as New York State and New York City anti-discrimination and sexual harassment statutes prohibit sexual harassment and provide victims with the means of pursuing and obtaining justice.

If you are experiencing sexual harassment at work, you may want to consider reporting this behavior with your employer or a Human Resource representative in written documentation. Your employer may remedy the issue. It's important to note that it is unlawful for your employer to retaliate against you in any employment-related decisions (ie., termination, demotion, denial of benefits, increased harassment etc.), for reporting instances of workplace sexual harassment. Should your employer fail to remedy the situation or ignore your concerns, call us today. You need experienced legal counsel - and that's what we offer.
