What Constitutes Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is a term that is often used interchangeably with sexual activity or sexual advances and can be physical or verbal.

What constitutes sexual harassment, however, is not always clear. The definition of sexual harassment is generally understood to be unwanted, unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature that makes the victim feel uncomfortable, "unpleasantly surprised," or humiliated.

Workplace Sexual Harassment

Over recent past decades, women have become increasingly active in the workforce, with most women seeking full-time employment while having families. As the number of working women has increased, unfortunately, so too has the number of cases of sexual harassment at work.

As a result, many states have begun to enact laws that aim to protect all employees from any kind of undesired sexual conduct on behalf of colleagues. Ultimately, sexual harassment in the workplace is illegal and should not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Employers have an obligation to protect their employees from sexual harassment, and if they fail to do so, they may face legal action against them.

"Was I A Victim Of Sexual Harassment At Work?"

Within the workplace, sexual harassment can take many different forms. One of the most common forms of sexual harassment is known as quid pro quo (Latin for "a thing for a thing"). In such instances, a supervisor may make an unwanted sexual advance on one of their employees in exchange for some type of advantage or preferential treatment.

Other forms of sexual harassment at work include but are certainly not limited to:

  1. unwelcome looks
  2. comments about the body or clothes
  3. repeated requests for dates
  4. unprofessional behavior such as dirty jokes or "frat-house" culture; and
  5. biased treatment based on some characteristic that is protected under federal law (such as gender.)

When Is It Right To Hire A Sexual Harassment Attorney?

While the place of employment is indeed one of the settings where sexual harassment manifests, it is by no means the only place. Victims may face unwanted sexual attention almost anywhere. As a result, many of such instances can serve as grounds for filing a sexual harassment lawsuit.

It's crucial for victims of sexual harassment to understand that they may always consult a legal professional if they believe their rights were violated. As previously stated, many states have enacted laws that specify the conduct which can be considered sexual in nature. In cases where sexual harassment violates the law, victims may seek compensation by filing a lawsuit against their harasser or their company.

How Can A Lawyer Help Me?

As the victim of sexual harassment, it's normal to ask yourself what legal avenues exist for seeking justice. Filing a sexual harassment lawsuit is not only a viable avenue but one which may prove most successful for victims.

One of the most important aspects to consider when thinking of filing a sexual harassment lawsuit is how crucial it is to retain a lawyer with extensive experience in this field. An experienced sexual harassment attorney will be intricately familiar with all steps of the process. Most critically, they will have worked with sexual harassment victims in the past and achieved compensation on their behalf.
