Are You the Victim of Workplace Sexual Harassment?

Many people are confused about what constitutes harassment. While requesting sexual favors in exchange for job advances or other favorable employment actions — or in order to avoid adverse employment actions such as wrongful termination — this form of sexual harassment (quid pro quo) only accounts for a small percentage of harassment that occurs in the workplace. Most sexual harassment cases arise when an employee is subjected to a hostile work environment, such as when a colleague or supervisor:

  • Makes unwanted sexual advances
  • Tells sexual jokes
  • Makes repeated comments of a sexual nature
  • Sends e-mails with obscenities, comments, photos or jokes of a sexual nature
  • Inappropriately touches or crowds another's personal space
  • Makes repeated unwelcome requests for dates
  • Leers/stares or makes "elevator eyes"
  • Any other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature

Many people who are forced to endure a hostile work environment eventually feel the only way out of the situation is to quit their job. What many do not realize, is that even in these situations, you may be capable of collecting lost wages for your time away from work.

At the Law Office of Richard A. Mulhearn, P.C., we can help you stand up for your rights — whether you need assistance stopping sexual harassment or holding an employer accountable for failing to take action against employees who continuously subject you to this behavior. We also hold employers accountable for gender discrimination or other forms of employment discrimination in retaliation for your filing a sexual harassment claim.
