Sexual Harassment in a Workplace May Take Various Forms
Cat-calls and whistles when you walk around the office are obvious forms of sexual harassment, as are direct solicitations from coworkers, supervisors, and managers for sexual contact or sexual acts. However, sexual harassment may take on more insidious forms as well, such as:
- Promising a promotion or raise (or threatening a demotion or reduction in pay) in exchange for sexual favors or activities;
- Making crude jokes or comments that are sexual in nature or that denigrate one sex or the other, even if you are not the intended audience for the joke or comment;
- Unwelcome and inappropriate touching, such as hugging, pinching, massaging, fondling, and/or kissing;
- Making sexual comments about one’s appearance or body; and/or
- Asking questions about a person’s sexual history, orientation, and/or preferences.
No worker deserves to be sexually harassed: if you find yourself the victim of any offensive behavior and/or words that are sexual in nature, take action by making a record of the harassment (when the harassment occurred, who committed the harassing act, and what manager or supervisor you spoke with concerning the harassment) and speaking with the Workplace Rights Law Group about your legal remedies.
Protections for Those Who Report Sexual Harassment
Legal protections exist for the victims of workplace sexual harassment as well as those who report incidents of sexual harassment that they witness. These protections include prohibitions against workplace retaliation or wrongful termination: in other words, your employer cannot take an adverse employment-related action against you or fire you simply because you reported an act of sexual harassment to an attorney or local or state authorities.
