Harassment Generally

Harassment involves singling out an employee in the workplace for unequal or derogatory treatment. Similar to discrimination cases, the harassment has to be directly related to membership in a protected class (like age, sexual orientation, gender, race, etc.) for it to result in a viable legal claim.

It is important to note that not all unequal treatment is harassment. There are numerous legal limitations and guidelines for employers in this regard, so it is important to talk with an experienced employment law attorney who can determine whether or not you have a harassment claim.

Sexual Harassment

One of the most common forms of harassment in the workplace is sexual harassment, which comes in two forms generally. First, "quid pro quo" harassment occurs when an employee or co-worker offers work-related benefits in exchange for sexual favors. These benefits can include advancement, raises, hiring and other benefits. The other form of sexual harassment involves a hostile work environment. This happens when co-workers or superiors engage in sexually inappropriate touching and communications (including talking, lewd jokes, emails and other forms of communication).
