Understanding The Definition Of Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
There are two different types of sexual harassment in Indiana: quid pro quo and hostile work environment. Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when employees are forced or expected to perform acts that are sexual in nature in order to receive a promotion, pay raise or some other type of benefit. In some cases, employees are expected or forced to perform sexual activities in order to avoid termination or other serious penalties.
The term “hostile work environment” refers to a work environment that is uncomfortable or unsafe due to unwelcome sexual advances, physical harassment, sexually offensive comments, sexually offense jokes, requests for sexual favors or other inappropriate behavior. An offhand or isolated remark on its own will not create a hostile work environment. But severe forms of sexual harassment or sexual harassment that occurs frequently could create a hostile work environment that interferes with the employees’ ability to perform their job duties.
If you aren’t sure whether your experience is legally considered harassment, it’s best to discuss your case with an attorney. Tell a sexual harassment lawyer more about your situation so you can determine whether or not your workplace rights have been violated.
