HAVE YOUR RIGHTS AS AN EMPLOYEE BEEN VIOLATED?

In today’s modern society, we spend a considerable amount of time at the workplace. For many hardworking Americans, their line of work is a primary source of revenue to support their families and their lifestyles. For this reason, the workplace has become like a “home away from home.”

When trouble sparks at the workplace, however, the stress and tension arising from work-related incidents can cause overbearing friction in our personal and professional lives. Though sexual harassment laws exist to prevent unwanted sexual advances within the workplace environment, the reality of sexual harassment still exists.

If you have been the victim of discrimination, or any form of harassment within the workplace, it is important to consult a legal professional immediately.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

The term “quid pro quo” translates to “something for something”. This is the most common form of sexual harassment, and it occurs when an authority figure in the workplace offers or hints that the employee will be given something in return for a sexual act. This also occurs when an authority figure says he or she will not fire or reprimand an employee in exchange for some type of sexual favor. A job applicant also may be the subject of this kind of harassment if the hiring decision was based on the acceptance or rejection of sexual advances.

Hostile environment sexual harassment occurs when unwelcome verbal, non-verbal, and/or physical conduct is sexual, based on sex, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, and severe or pervasive enough to interfere with a person’s work performance, thereby creating a hostile, intimidating or offensive environment in the workplace. Our employment attorneys specialize in handling these types of sexual harassment cases, and we can help you navigate this difficult and offensive situation.
