What Is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment occurs when unwanted sexual advances are made. That could be a coworker requesting sexual favors. That could be your boss making lewd jokes at your expense. If you are feeling uneasy at work, you should always consult with a lawyer. It may not be sexual harassment under the law, but you want to know right away so you can take action. 

There Are Two Main Types of Sexual Harassment: 

Quid Pro Quo: In this type of sexual harassment case, workers are expected to tolerate unwanted sexual advances or even sexual contact as part of an employment threat or reward. For example, if a supervisor makes a job offer, a raise, a promotion, or even continued employment contingent on a sexual favor, this is sexual harassment. It only takes one such incident to justify a sexual harassment claim. 

Hostile Work Environment: While the occasional sexually charged joke or comment is typically not illegal, the situation can rise to the level of sexual harassment if the behavior is frequent or severe enough to create a hostile work environment. A hostile work environment is any work environment where an employee’s ability to perform their job is affected by harassment or abuse. Examples include:

  • Unwelcome Sexual Advances
  • Offensive Gestures or Touching
  • Leering Looks
  • Comments about a person’s body, appearance, or sexual activity.
  • Displaying cartoons or images of a sexual nature.
  • Conduct that shows hostility based on sex or gender.

Can Males Be Victims of Sexual Harassment in California?

Absolutely. The law protects everyone from sexual harassment, regardless of the gender of the individuals involved. At The Law Offices of Larry H.
