What Is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment occurs when a person receives unwanted sexual advances, whether in exchange for something or simply to make someone feel uncomfortable. This crime falls into two general classifications: quid pro quo harassment and creation of a hostile work environment.

Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment

Quid pro quo sexual harassment involves a trade-off of sexual favors, a romantic relationship, or cooperation in some other type of sexually-based scenario. The most common form of quid pro quo sexual harassment involves a superior who offers a promotion or other favorable treatment to an employee in return for sexual favors, or who penalizes an employee who rejects his/her advances.

Hostile Work Environment Claims

Hostile work environment claims are often less clear-cut and may arise in the context of sexual harassment or in relation to any other protected class.

For example, a hostile work environment claim might arise out of:

  • Repeated, unwanted touching
  • Ongoing discrimination relating to race, sex, or another protected characteristic
  • An environment characterized by vulgar language, sexually explicit discussion, or display of explicit material

To rise to the level of actionable harassment, a hostile work environment must be pervasive. Single or occasional incidents will generally not be sufficient to support a claim.

If You Are a Victim of Harassment, Get Help Now

Too often, people who are subjected to harassment in the workplace feel helpless. The environment might be so destructive that it induces anxiety, makes you physically ill, and fills you with a sense of dread about going to work in the morning. Employees who fear losing their jobs or facing other penalties frequently feel they have no choice but to tolerate harassment.

The law protects you, but only if you act. Establishing a hostile work environment claim requires not just a showing of harassment but also that the employer has been allowed reasonable time to correct the situation and failed to do so. Certain types of harassment claims require that you follow internal procedures and that you submit a complaint to an agency prior to pursuing a civil case. Often, agency filings have much tighter deadlines than lawsuits.

An experienced Los Angeles workplace harassment attorney can explain your rights and options so that you can make informed decisions about how to address your situation. Frontier can help you determine whether you are ready to pursue a workplace harassment claim against your employer.

You should not feel trapped, anxious, or unsafe at work. Take control right now by scheduling a free consultation. Call (844) 934-1245.
