Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many forms. It extends far beyond the traditional “quid pro quo” scenario of a male supervisor pressuring a female subordinate for sexual favors. In today’s diverse workforce, sexual harassment often involves more subtle behaviors. It can be directed toward either gender on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Experiencing A Pattern Of Uncomfortable Conduct?

No employee should have to endure a workplace where offensive remarks, inappropriate touching, derogatory comments or other uncomfortable behaviors are allowed to persist. If you experience a pattern of sexual harassment at your workplace, and your supervisors are either involved in the harassment or fail to do anything about it, you should consider enforcing your rights through a hostile work environment claim.

This type of employment law claim can help expose the harassment, prevent it from recurring and shield you from retaliation. You might also be entitled to compensation for the indignity you have suffered and, in some cases, punitive damages (a monetary award intended to deter other employers from allowing such harassment to flourish).
