What is Sexual Harassment in the Workplace?

Sexual harassment is defined as:

  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Requests for sexual favors whether implied or stated
  • Any type of conduct in the workplace that is sexual in nature, whether presented verbally, visually, or in some other way

Key to this type of discrimination is that it is unwanted. It can be verbal, nonverbal, or physical in nature. It also becomes a condition of employment, affecting decisions about the victim’s employment or position, and interferes with the victim’s ability to work. Sexual harassment is characterized by creating a hostile, offensive, or intimidating work environment.

This type of discrimination can be aimed at both men and women and the victim does not necessarily have to be of the opposite sex as the harasser. Harassment can be committed by supervisors, co-workers, other agents of the employer, and non-employees. A victim of sexual harassment also does not necessarily have to be the targeted victim but anyone else in the environment who is upset by the misconduct.

At Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C., we understand how difficult it can be for you to decide to report this type of discriminatory behavior and to pursue justice. However, we urge you to seek our help in standing up for your rights as well as the rights of others in the workplace.
