Protect Your Rights In The Workplace
Workplace sexual harassment comes in two main forms: the hostile work environment and quid pro quo. A hostile work environment involves managers, supervisors or colleagues who create an environment that is sexually intimidating or embarrassing. Examples of behavior that could cause a work environment to be hostile can include dirty jokes, pictures and emails, unwanted attention, inappropriate derogatory terms and unwelcomed physical contact. In quid pro quo, a superior offers continued employment, promotion or other workplace benefits to the performance of sexual favors.
