Forms Of Sexual Harassment

Workplace sexual harassment is a complex, highly-individualized issue, but generally takes one of two forms:

Quid Pro Quo – When someone conditions your hiring, continued employment, promotion, or benefits on your submission to sexual advances or some other kind of sexual conduct.

Hostile Work Environment - Inappropriate behavior in the workplace that is either severe or pervasive enough to create an abusive work atmosphere. Unlawful harassment can take many forms, including:

Inappropriate jokes, derogatory comments, or innuendos

Physical harassment, unwanted touching and groping

Visual harassment, such as pictures or drawings

Aggressive or repeated requests for sexual favors

Showing favoritism based on a protected characteristic

The employee rights attorneys of Buchsbaum & Haag, LLP, can help. Regardless of your gender, if you are being harassed at work by another individual, you have rights that can be protected. The first step in protecting yourself is to talk to an experienced employee rights lawyer to determine if you have legal recourse. We will listen carefully to establish the merits of your case. If we take your case, it will be on a contingency basis: Our fee is contingent on getting our client a recovery.


Fighting to End Workplace Sexual Harassment

When B&H takes on a case, we conduct an intensive investigation of the circumstances surrounding the sexual harassment you were subjected to, whether physical, visual, written or verbal. If you’ve reported the harassment, your employer may have excused the misbehavior if it came from a valued supervisor or employee. In other cases, the human resources department of a company might gloss over a complaint, allowing harassment to continue.

In all sexual harassment cases taken by our attorneys, we aggressively seek justice on behalf of our clients, whether it’s through settlement or litigation.
