Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of sexual discrimination. The types of harassment range from demands for sex to secure or protect your job through the creation of an intolerable work environment through sexual intimidation or through continual harassment on the job.
The more obvious types of sexual harassment in the workplace include demands for sex in order to get a job, keep a job, or to get a raise or promotion. Whether you refuse the advances and then experience adverse conditions on the job, or you succumb to the advances for fear of losing your job or position, it may amount to sexual harassment and retaliation.
If you have to put up with sexual jokes, comments about your anatomy, sexual advances, catcalls, sexually offensive advances, contact or intrusions, whether it adversely affects your job or not, this may amount to sexual harassment.
In a sexual harassment case, you may be able to recover back pay, future damages, interest, damages resulting from emotional distress, punitive damages and your legal costs.
