Types of Sexual Harassment
According to the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), sexual harassment is any attempt to harass a person at the workplace because of their sex. This harassment often takes on a pattern of intimidating behavior. Both men and women can be the victim of sexual harassment.
Types sexual harassment in the workplace can include:
- Sexual imposition. Sexual imposition includes inappropriate touching, grabbing and feeling. Sexual imposition is one of the most offensive forms of sexual harassment and may result in sexual assault charges.
- Gender harassment. Gender harassment includes degrading jokes and remarks about an individual’s gender. Obscene jokes or offensive graffiti in the workplace may be considered gender harassment as well.
- Sexual coercion. This type of harassment is extremely serious and generally involves employers who threaten to fire, withhold promotions, or reduce salaries of employees who refuse to participate in sexual activity or other behaviors.
- Seductive behavior. Compared to imposition and coercion, this type of harassment may be difficult to identify and includes unwanted sexual advances, persistent dating requests, persistence emails/letters and repeated phone calls.
If you notify your employer, they are obligated to take action to resolve the problem. If you need to file charges, if your employer fails to respond, or if you need to file a harassment claim, our Port St. Lucie employment law attorneys can help you assert your rights. You have the right to seek legal help.
