Sexual Harassment | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Victim, Employees | Unwelcome Sexual Advances, Discrimination, Hostile Work Environment | Civil Rights Act 1964

Sexual harassment is any kind of sexual behavior that is unwelcome and/or inappropriate for the workplace. Sexual harassment can be in form of verbal abuse or harassment which can be derogatory comments or dirty jokes, visual harassment, physical harassment, and sexual favors.

Sexual harassment is defined as "unwelcome sexual advances or conduct". Sexual harassment also includes animosity that is gender-based and a sexually charged work environment. In the work place, sexual harassment can come from the owner, supervisor, manager, lead person, foreperson, co-worker and/or customer.

Employees are protected under both state and federal law against workplace sexual harassment. Federal law remedies for workplace discrimination are based upon Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 [FN1], which applies to employers with fifteen or more employees. People who work for smaller employers are usually protected by similar state anti-discrimination laws.

Protected By Civil Rights Act

Under federal law, same-sex sexual harassment can support a claim against an employer. State laws may vary on the issue of same-sex harassment.

To bring an action for sexual harassment, the plaintiff must establish that:

The plaintiff found the conduct to be hostile, abusive or offensive; A reasonable person in the position of the plaintiff would consider the conduct hostile, abusive or offensive.
