What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment can happen at any workplace, including in the office, on the job, or during business travel. In most cases, sexual harassment is unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is made either explicitly or implicitly because of sex. Sexual harassment can be a form of gender discrimination. It can also be a form of employment discrimination. Sexual harassment can create an intimidating, hostile work environment that has a negative impact on employees’ productivity and morale.
There are many different types of sexual harassment. Some examples include: making lewd comments about someone’s body; making sexually suggestive remarks; following someone around or harassing them in their office; sending explicit pictures or messages; showing up to work drunk or high; and creating a hostile climate by making sexist jokes. If you experience sexual harassment at your workplace, you may want to speak with an attorney. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights and protect yourself from retaliation.

Types of Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment can take many different forms, from crude comments to more serious acts like sexual assault. There’s no one way to experience sexual harassment at work, and it can happen to anyone from any gender or job category. The most common types of sexual harassment are:
-Verbal abuse, which includes harassing comments about a person’s sex life or body
-Quid pro quo harassment, in which someone is offered something valuable in exchange for avoiding sexual advances
-Hostile environment harassment, which includes offensive jokes and other verbal or physical conduct that makes working conditions unbearable
-Sexual assault, which is an actual act of violence or forced touching against someone’s body
What to do if You are Sexually Harassed at Work
If you are a victim of sexual harassment at work, there are steps you can take to protect yourself. First, talk to your supervisor or human resources department about the harassment. This will help to create a record of the harassment so that it can be investigated and addressed. Second, document the harassment using emails, screenshots, or other evidence. This will help to show that the harassment occurred and could provide grounds for retaliation or discrimination if you speak out against the harasser. Finally, consider filing a complaint with your local civil rights division or the EEOC. These organizations can investigate and potentially take action against your harasser.
How to File a Sexual Harassment Claim
If you have been the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, there are steps you can take to protect yourself. The first step is to speak to your supervisor or HR department about the situation. You may also want to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If you decide not to speak with your supervisor or HR, you can file a sexual harassment claim with your state’s human rights agency. There are specific steps you should take when filing a sexual harassment claim, so be sure to consult an attorney if you need help following these steps.
