Types of Sexual Harassment

Our lawyers have the experience and knowledge of employment law to handle any type of harassment claim. In general, there are two types of sexual harassment:

  • Quid pro quo: This occurs when a superior such as a boss or a manager promises something or threatens to take an adverse employment action unless you provide a sexual favor.
  • Hostile work environment: This refers to unacceptable behavior in the workplace such as references to body parts, offensive touching, offensive e-mails and other behavior that is sexual or gender-based.

Legal Options if You Have Been Harassed

If you have been subjected to quid pro quo or hostile work environment harassment, you should talk to an attorney as soon as possible. There is no cost and no risk to speak with us about your options.

We will help you devise a strategy to document the harassment and to report it to your human resources department. If your employer takes remedial action to correct the behavior, then your problem is solved. However, if your employer fails to correct the problem or takes an action that constitutes retaliation, such as wrongful termination, then you will be in a position where we can fight for financial compensation from your employer.
