What Does Sexual Harassment Look Like?

Recognizing Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can range dramatically from subtle actions to assault. It can include a boss propositioning an employee, or a manager “hitting on” or touching a worker outside of the office during an office party or while traveling. It can involve sexist behavior such as jokes from coworkers or supervisors. It may also include sexual advances by or sexual suggestions during the hiring process.

Sexual Harassment may include:

  • Sexist Words and Conduct
  • Sexual Jokes or innuendos
  • Unwanted Touching/Unlawful touching
  • Sexual Advances- Requests for a date or Drinks
  • During the Hiring Process
  • During the Promotion Process
  • During work-schedule setting
  • Anytime during work (or even after)
  • Requests for sex
  • Sexual Bribery
  • Sexual Coercion
  • Sexual Gift Giving
  • Criminal Sexual Conduct
  • Being fired or demoted for rejecting sexual advances.

Many workers remain silent, fearful of retaliatory conduct by a powerful employer. It is crucial to call a seasoned sexual harassment lawyer to protect and represent you during this difficult time.

Types of Harassment:
The stereotypical sexual harassment scenario is a man in a figure of authority harassing a subordinate female worker. However, sexual harassment is usually broader than that. It can also be perpetrated by a coworker or customer, and it can be committed by someone of the same sex as you. It can also be based on a person’s actual or perceived sexual orientation.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a time limit to file a sexual harassment claim?

    Yes. Victims generally need to file a charge with the EEOC within 180 days from the day the harassment took place. Under some circumstances, the 180-day deadline may be extended by state law, but in most cases, failure to file within the deadline may bar your right to relief.

  • I witnessed harassment at work. What should I do?

    You should report the incident to your employer, and you may also explain to the offender that what she or he did is not funny or welcome.

  • Is all workplace harassment considered illegal?

    No. The laws do not prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious.

  • Does harassment have to occur at work for it to be illegal?

    No. The law protects you whether the harassment occurred on or off the workplace.
