Sexual harassment is usually not about sex, but about power. Such behavior may be designed to humiliate and control a subordinate employee. Some harassers actually believe it is acceptable to use their power to coerce employees into sexual relationships or force employees to work in a hostile environment. Sexual harassers usually think they will never be held accountable and will never be reported. They may believe the subordinate employee will remain quiet, in order to avoid embarrassment to protect their job.

Sexual harassment can include verbal, physical or visual conduct and generally occurs in two forms. The first type is called “quid pro quo”, where obtaining, keeping, or advancing in a job is conditioned on submission to sexual advances, or where the harassment results in some other adverse employment action. The second type of harassment is a “hostile work environment”,where unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature unreasonably interferes with work and creates intimidating, hostile and offensive work conditions.

If the harasser is the employee’s manager or supervisor, then the employer will usually be held liable. If the harassment is by a co-worker or customer and the employer fails to take action to stop the harassment, the employer can be held liable. The harasser can also be held liable.

Innocent Fun or Sexual Harassment? | Labor Law Office

We recognize how distressing it is for any victim in a sexual harassment situation to discuss their situation with another person, especially an attorney. When undue sexual pressure is put on an employee by a person in power over them and their paycheck, the resulting stress can be devastating. Most victims are embarrassed and angry as a result of unwanted attention or demands. In some cases, an employee must report the harassment to their employer and take advantage of any efforts by the employer to reduce the damages an employee may suffer. For example, if an employer has a written policy requiring employees report sexual harassment. If the employee fails to do so and further harassment occurs, the employer’s liability may be limited.

Our office has extensive experience in dealing with these issues, and understands the emotional pressures involved. If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, call Labor Law Office, APC immediately.
