Getting Relief For Sexual Harassment Victims
Sexual harassment has no place in today’s workplace. Where once sexual harassment was often tolerated, overlooked or misunderstood, it is now recognized as the cause of real and significant emotional and economic harm.
Victims of sexual harassment often experience confusion regarding the nature of illegal, actionable sexual harassment. Sexual harassment occurs under two sets of circumstances:
- Harassment leading to a hostile work environment
- “Quid quo pro” harassment, which means that an employee is denied compensation or benefits, including promotion, advancement and pay, upon the employee’s refusal to engage in unwanted sexual activity
Hostile work environments can be created by unwanted and inappropriate comments, emails, pictures and/or touching.
