Sexual harassment manifests itself in a variety of guises, all of which are unacceptable and illegal. sexual harassment ranges from unwanted touching to rude sexist jokes to solicitation of sexual favors in exchange for work benefits. Sexual harassment has been historically directed at women in the workplace, but men are increasingly reporting that they have been sexually harassed.
Sexual harassment is unfortunately seriously under-reported, because victims of sexual harassment fear retaliation or are ashamed of their victimization. We, however, urge all victims of sexual harassment to understand that the best way to prevent sexual harassment is to take legal action against the perpetrators. We would also like to remind potential plaintiffs that retaliation is illegal, and an employer cannot fire a worker for filing a sexual harassment without creating an opening for more legal action.
Sexual harassment includes all of the following:
- Inappropriate sexual jokes
- Inappropriate touching
- Creating a hostile work environment
