Important Facts About Sexual Harassment
Harassment is a form of discrimination that can occur behind closed doors or in public view.
These unlawful actions can be characterized as:
- Quid pro quo harassment, which occurs when a supervisor demands sexual favors in exchange for promotions or as a condition of your employment
- Harassment that encourages a hostile work environment, in which others display inappropriate images on walls or computers screens, make lewd comments or act in a way that makes it intolerable to work
Employment law prohibits both forms of harassment on all work sites.
Before you consider legal action, it is crucial that you put your supervisor on notice. If you tell your manager or your boss that you have been harassed on the job and nothing is done, your company can be held liable. If you have been harassed by a supervisor, prior notice is not required.
