New Jersey Sexual Harassment & Sexual Assault Attorney
WHAT IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT & SEXUAL ASSAULT?
Sexual Harassment and Hostile Work Environments: The two basic forms of sexual harassment are hostile work environment creating a hostile work environment and quid pro quo sexual harassment.
Hostile Work Environment is the unlawful to harassment a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.
Commonly we see consists of men acting inappropriately towards women, but sometimes towards other men. The most common form is where the harasser indicates he is attracted to the victim, but he goes too far, making her feel very uncomfortable, ignoring that his attention is unwanted. Harassers often comment on the victim's body in a vulgar way, and make statements concerning sexual activity which they desire.
When sexual harassment does occur upon a male it can consist of inappropriate remarks, inappropriate physical actions directed in the male’s direction or jokes directed at his expense which can occur outwardly or behind his back.
These days no harasser seems to be capable of resisting the temptation to text or email his victim. These communications are playing an important role in our cases: once the victim receives one, it is no longer a question of who said what to whom. There are other ways to preserve evidence. Clients now approach us actual recordings of their harasser verbalizing their conduct. In addition, individuals are becoming more savvy and even recording their complaints to superiors or managers regarding harassers. Quid Pro Sexual Harassment occurs when an employer attempts to make the employee's submission to sexual advances a condition of his or her employment. It involves a spoken or even implied threat that if the employee does not comply with the employer's sexual demands, he or she will be terminated or suffer other adverse job-related actions, such as demotion, suspension, loss in pay, failure to promote, loss of benefits and/or perks etc.
