You don’t have to endure sexual harassment in order to keep a job.

Defining Your Sexual Harassment Case

Most cases of sexual harassment fall into one of two categories: Quid pro quo sexual harassment, derived from the Latin phrase meaning “this for that,” happens when a co-worker, manager or supervisor pressure you to provide sexual favors in exchange for keeping your job, getting a promotion or raise, or avoiding disciplinary action or a demotion. In some cases, the best solution to a case of quid pro quo sexual harassment will involve negotiating a substantial settlement or severance package as an alternative to litigation.

In the case of a hostile workplace, you may find it difficult to do your job because of an inappropriately sexualized environment. This can manifest in many ways:

  • A co-worker or a supervisor may make persistent and suggestive remarks about your body or the way you dress, or touch you inappropriately.
  • Pornographic or otherwise offensive images and jokes may be allowed to circulate in the office.
  • You may be asked overly personal questions about your sex or love life.
  • A co-worker or supervisor may email or text you suggestive messages.
  • Company functions may take place in inappropriate settings such as a strip club.

Facing Retaliation At Work

Unfortunately, sometimes workers who complain about sexual harassment at work will then find themselves the target of a retaliatory firing, demotion or any other adverse employment action. This may also happen to additional workers who are perceived to support the complaint. Retaliation of this sort is against the law. Lawsuits, therefore, can often address both the sexual harassment itself and the retaliatory action the employer may have taken in response to the victimized worker reporting the problem.
