Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

As an employee, you do not have to tolerate any type of sexual harassing behavior, whether it is from a co-worker or a high-ranking executive. Sexual harassment violates federal law and is a type of employment discrimination. Employers are expected to provide a work environment that is free of such offensive behavior. If it is reported, they are expected to act quickly to handle it. Any employee who reports being subjected to sexual harassment in the workplace is also protected against any type of retaliatory action or reprisals from his or her employer.

Sexual harassment consists of a variety of behaviors, including unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature, and actual sexual assault or rape. An offhand remark, teasing, or an isolated incident does not usually constitute sexual harassment. When sexually offensive behavior becomes so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile work environment for the victim, however, it needs to be addressed. The harassment may come from either sex and the harasser may be the victim's senior, giving the victim concerns about job security.

If you have been subjected to sexual harassment, it is important to discuss your case with a Washington DC federal employment lawyer at your earliest convenience.
