Our Queens Sexual Harassment Practice
Sexual harassment can take a couple of different forms:
- Quid pro quo sexual harassment, in which a supervisor or coworker either promises a work-related benefit in exchange for sex or threatens a work-related sanction because of the refusal to submit to sexual demands
- The existence of a hostile work environment based on sex, in which there are unwanted comments, innuendos, jokes, pictures, e-mails or other communications/acts of a sexual nature, and they are encouraged, allowed or condoned by management
