Get in contact with experienced attorney early to address sexual harassment in workplace

In our last post, we began looking at the topic of sexual harassment and recognizing the signs and forms it may take. As we noted, two common forms of sexual harassment are quid pro quo and hostile work environment.

Recognizing the signs of sexual harassment: quid pro quo and hostile work environment

Sexual harassment is a type of sex discrimination which can take a variety of forms. Not every form of sexual harassment is easily or immediately recognizable as such. In some cases, an employee is too close to the situation and the relationships giving rise to the harassment that he or she may not see it clearly right away. Or, maybe the employee suspects that harassment has occurred, but isn’t sure if what occurred is illegal.
