The fundamentals of sexual harassment
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination, which makes it illegal. Most of the people who file cases of sexual harassment are women, though in 2009 men filed approximately 16% of all complaints. The number of same-sex sexual harassment cases is also on the rise. Sexual harassment can take many forms.
- Unwelcome sexual advances
- Unwelcome physical contact
- Lewd jokes
- Lewd verbal communication
- Requests for sexual favors
- Firing or demotion for refusing sexual favors
- Pornography in the workplace or e-mails
Sexual harassment can take many forms within these general areas, but the focus falls on the unwelcome nature of the acts. While the courts do not require a workplace to be free from off-color jokes and sexual references, an employer cannot allow the environment to become so tainted that it affects the terms and conditions of your employment. If you have been a victim of any of these acts you may be entitled to file a sexual harassment suit. Stein Discrimination Lawyers assist you through the process of filing a complaint.
