What is Considered Sexual Harassment at Work?

Sexual harassment is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. There are two different types of workplace sexual harassment: quid pro quo, and hostile work environment.

Quid pro quo sexual harassment is enacted by someone in a position of authority over the victim. An employer will imply worker’s employment or benefits are contingent upon the fulfillment of sexual requests. Promotions may be withheld or jobs threatened if the employee does not accept the sexual advances of their supervisor.

A hostile work environment is created when an employee exhibits unwelcome sexual behavior. This includes words and actions that create an abusive atmosphere. This environment must be severe, persistent, and pervasive enough to affect an employee's ability to work.

Other examples of sexual harassment include:

  • Crude language
  • Lewd gestures
  • Offensive jokes
  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Unwelcome sexual touching
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual violence
  • Threats of sexual assault and violence
  • Offensive and explicit images or videos

Employers have a duty to take action when they are made aware of workplace harassment. You may have grounds to file a complaint if you reported harassment to your employer and they failed to respond.

Dealing with Sexual Harassment at Work

If you are facing workplace harassment, it is important to take action. When possible, you will want to make it clear to the harassing person that their behavior is wrong. You will also want to bring your concerns to a supervisor, manager, or other appropriate party.

You can also file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or similar agency. After performing an investigation, the agency you file with will issue a remedy and a Right to Sue. If you are not satisfied with their response, you can proceed with a lawsuit.

With a successful sexual harassment lawsuit, you can recover compensation for damages suffered. These damages depend on the harm you've suffered as a result of the harassment.

Damages you can recover in a sexual harassment case include:

  • Back pay for wrongful termination, denial or a raise, and other factors resulting from the harassment
  • Reinstatement to your job if you were fired or forced to quit
  • Front pay to compensate for lost wages if reinstatement is not possible or practical
  • Pain and suffering for emotional harm caused by the harassment
  • Punitive damages to punish your employer for failing to stop the harassment, in egregious cases

It can be overwhelming to work towards a sexual harassment case, but you do not have to do it alone. Our lawyers for sexual harassment can help simplify this entire process. We can help you collect necessary information and file with the correct organizations to build a strong case.
