All types of sexual harassment can be emotionally traumatic and make it impossible to do your job. Harassment may include sexually offensive or demeaning remarks, jokes, gestures, emails, websites or photographs. While it typically begins as verbal, sexual harassment can become physical and include sexual advances, threats or inappropriate touching.

Is Your Job Affected By Sexual Harassment And Advances?
State and federal laws prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. This includes hostile work environments and quid pro quo behavior such as demanding sexual favors in exchange for raises, promotions and other employment considerations.
Sexual harassment and hostile work environments are types of sex discrimination and can include harassment regarding:
- Whether a person is biologically a man or a woman
- Sexual orientation
Workplace sexual harassment can be committed by people of the opposite or same sex as the victim. They may be managers, co-workers or third parties in the workplace.
It is important to document evidence of the harassment, report it to your employer and follow your employer's reporting procedure. We can advise and/or represent you at any point in the process. We will also represent you at Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) hearings and, if necessary, in court.
