What Constitutes Sexual Harassment?

The following are examples of what could be considered sexual harassment in the workplace:

  • Making inappropriate jokes about sex or gender
  • Repeatedly flirting with a coworker
  • Sending or sharing lewd imagery at work or in a work-related forum

Many cases do not involve a coworker but instead a business owner or executive. If you were victimized by a co-worker or boss, contact our attorneys for experienced representation.

Companies might be accused of sexual harassment or discrimination if:

  • One sex or gender is routinely paid less than the average amount
  • Hiring practices seem to favor one sex or gender
  • Firing members of one sex or gender
  • Not preventing or penalizing sexual harassment between employees

It is also important to note that sexual harassment does not need to include two members of the opposite sex or gender. Federal law states that sexual harassment and discrimination can occur between any two people. For example, a woman who makes inappropriate comments about a female coworker’s appearance has still committed sexual harassment in the workplace.

Steps to Take if You've Experienced Sexual Harassment at Work

Experiencing sexual harassment at work can be traumatic and overwhelming. It's important to know that you have legal rights and options to protect yourself.

Here are some important steps to take if you've experienced sexual harassment:

  1. Report the harassment: Notify your employer or HR department immediately. Make sure to document the incident(s) and any response you receive.
  2. Seek support: Talk to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor about what you're going through. It's important to take care of your mental and emotional health.
  3. File a complaint: If your employer doesn't take action to address the harassment, you can file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or your state's labor department.
  4. Hire an attorney: A sexual harassment attorney can help you navigate the legal process and advocate for your rights. They can also help you pursue compensation for any damages you've suffered.
