Sexual harassment is sometimes very subjective to an outside observer. The most important factor is that the action is unwanted and inappropriate from the standpoint of the person experiencing the harassment. Whether visual, physical, or verbal, if the actions are not welcome and make the person feel uncomfortable, they are sexual harassment.
Jokes, signs, gestures, slurs, touch, and many other behaviors can constitute unwanted sexual conduct and create an intimidating workplace. Many exchanges are based on “quid pro quo,” indicating that if the recipient accepts the behavior, they will be rewarded or protected from negative actions. Situations like these are illegal and abusive, and they should be met with legal action.
Left unchecked by the employer, this kind of environment can harm employees physically and mentally. Even if a worker is not the direct target of a harasser, they can suffer when forced to witness the behavior. If you are unsure if your case qualifies as sexual harassment, our experienced attorneys at Aegis Law can discuss your circumstances to determine if they are illegal.
You can suffer emotionally, physically, and financially when you experience sexual harassment at work. From being overlooked for a raise to being physically assaulted, those who have hurt you must be held accountable for their actions. When you file a lawsuit against them, you can pursue the individuals who are responsible, as well as the employer who allowed the behavior to flourish.
