Unfortunately, sexual harassment is all too common in Newark, OH. While it happens often, it is also largely unreported. Victims often feel uncomfortable when sexual harassment occurs but because the act was subtle, they do not think it rose to the level of harassment. The truth is, while sexual harassment can lead to victims dreading the thought of going to work, most individual acts of harassment are subtle. If you feel as though you were the victim of this type of behavior in the workplace, our sexual harassment lawyers in Newark, OH can help you make it right.
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, there are two types of workplace sexual harassment. These are quid pro quo harassment and harassment that creates a toxic work environment. Of the two, harassment that creates a hostile work environment is the most common today.
The term ‘quid pro quo’ is a Latin phrase that means a favor or advantage granted or expected in return for something. In terms of sexual harassment, quid pro quo typically refers to any time an employer, manager, or other person in an authoritative position asks a worker for sexual favors in exchange for a benefit to the employee. For example, an employer may promise an employee a promotion or raise if they agree to go on a date with them.
When sexual harassment creates a hostile work environment, it is so pervasive that it interferes with the employee’s ability to perform their job. In order for sexual harassment to create a hostile work environment, the behavior must happen often. A one-time occurrence is not enough to raise sexual harassment to the level of creating a hostile work environment.
Too often, victims are subjected to sexual harassment for an extended period of time because they simply do not realize it is happening.
