Sexual harassment is degrading and humiliating. If you have experienced harassment in the workplace, it can take a toll on all areas of your life. Your job performance may be suffering. Unable to concentrate, you may feel helpless and hopeless. You may be kept awake at night by an endless stream of worries about what new horrors the next day holds.
You should never have to put up with sexual harassment at work. As an employee, you have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.

In representing employees over the course of more than 15 years, we have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge on how to hold employers and harassers accountable.
Is It Harassment?
Behaviors that amount to sexual harassment may include:
- Offensive jokes or comments that create a hostile work environment
- Pressure for sexual favors (quid pro quo harassment)
- Presence of sexually explicit materials in the workplace
- Unwanted physical contact
Sexual harassment can extend far beyond the classic scenario of a male supervisor harassing a female subordinate. It can take place between co-workers of any status, and it may involve members of either sex.
