Types Of Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment comes in many forms. It may be obvious or subtle.
Quid pro quo sexual harassment: Threatening employment consequences if the employee does not perform a sexual favor or offering employment opportunities for sexual favors
Hostile work environment: Unwelcome sexual advances or propositions, unwanted sexual touching or gestures, sexual jokes, pictures, or derogatory comments, and gender discrimination
If employees can show that the workplace conduct was offensive and that they did not consent to any of the conduct, they may be able to recover damages for lost wages, emotional distress and attorney fees. Employers may also face punitive damages.
