There are two general types of workplace sexual harassment:
"Hostile Work Environment" sexual harassment This category of sexual harassment deals with physical, verbal, and visual sexual harassment. It includes unwanted physical contact, such as inappropriate touching, displaying sexually explicit/pornographic material to the victim, or making sexually-explicit comments to the victim. "Quid Pro Quo" sexual harassment Quid pro quo sexual harassment is essentially a "this for that" proposition, wherein a supervisor or manager demands sexual favors from the victim/employee as a condition of the employee's continued employment or in exchange for a promotion or an increase in compensation for the employee.
If you feel that you have been victimized by sexual harassment in the workplace, you should take the following steps:
Bring the matter to the attention of your employer's Human Resource Manager. Be sure to file a formal complaint. Consult with a skilled employment attorney at Beverly Hills Law Corp., who can review the facts of your harassment and assert your legal rights during this difficult time. Of course, if you feel a crime has been committed against you, you'll want to immediately report it to law enforcement.
