Common Sexual Harassment Situations
"Quid Pro Quo" Sexual Harassment
Many cases of sexual harassment occur in situations where benefits (such as salary increases, promotions, work assignments, etc.) are only granted to an employee in exchange for sexual favors, or when an employee is threatened with termination or lesser consequences if they refuse to provide sexual favors.
Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment
Another common form of sexual harassment involves situations where an employee is the victim of hostility, where unwelcome verbal, non-verbal and/or physical conduct toward them is sexual or based on their gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.
