Sexual harassment has several legal definitions. Generally it’s the unwelcome verbal, visual or physical conduct of a sexual nature that’s severe or pervasive and affects working conditions or creates a hostile work environment. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:
- Submission is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment,
- An employee’s submission to or rejection of the conduct is a basis for employment decisions,
- Such conduct unreasonably interferes with work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
Examples of sexual harassment include unwelcome sexual propositions or marriage proposals; unwelcome hugging, kissing, or other offensive physical contact of a sexual nature; unwelcome lewd gestures, remarks, or innuendoes; unwelcome discussions of sexual practices or anatomy; and unwelcome sexually offensive posters, photographs, drawings, cartoons, jokes, stories, nicknames, or comments about appearance.
An employer has the obligation to protect employees from unlawful sexual harassment by its employees, as well as by third parties such as vendors and customers.
Not only is the employer liable for sexual harassment, but we also pursue the individual harasser. Furthermore, employers are prohibited from retaliating against employees who report sexual harassment.
