What Is Workplace Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is defined as any unwanted, unwelcomed sexual advance in the workplace. It can be visual, verbal, physical, and/or written. No matter what type of sexual harassment it is, it’s illegal! Workers are protected under the law.

The two main categories of sexual harassment in the workplace are “quid pro quo” and “hostile work environment.”

Quid Pro Quo – This is a latin phrase that translates to “this for that.” This exchange is usually a work-based incentive for a sexual favor. 

Hostile Work Environment – While overworked employees may consider their bosses “hostile”, a hostile work environment is actually referring to hostility based on protected characteristics of employees (like race, gender, sexual orientation, and more). This might look like a superior or coworker making inappropriate jokes, gestures, or suggestions, as well as unwanted physical contact.

What Are The Laws Regarding Workplace Sexual Harassment?

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Workplace sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination, thus making workplace sexual harassment illegal. The Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing Title VII and investigating claims of sexual harassment in the workplace. Your employer is legally required to prevent and address sexual harassment; if they have failed to do that, the El Dorado Hills workplace sexual harassment lawyers at Equal Justice Law Group will! 

How Workplace Sexual Harassment Might Affect Your Life

Being sexually harassed at your job can potentially affect your mental, emotional, and even physical health in a devastating way. You may feel embarrassed, like it was your fault, or frightened for your safety. You may also fear other coworkers finding out and viewing you differently. If you refused “quid pro quo” or filed a complaint against your employer or coworker for sexual harassment, you may be afraid that they will retaliate against you and deny you promotions or wrongfully terminate your employment, compromising your financial stability. You may be left with trauma that requires professional therapy in order to move forward with your life. 

No matter what the consequences are, it isn’t fair that you’ve been put in this position and that someone else’s treatment of you is negatively affecting your job. At Equal Justice Law Group, we are passionate about righting the wrongs of unlawful employers.
