Sexual Harassment

Each year, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports that approximately 15,000 sexual harassment cases are filed in our country. Contrary to popular belief, sexual harassment cases are not just filed by women in the work force. In fact, the EEOC claims that the number of cases filed by men has more than tripled in recent years. The Commission also reports that 11% of sexual harassment claims that are filed involve male employees who are harassed by female supervisors. With these statistics it is clear to see that sexual harassment victims are of both genders.

What Is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is coercion of a sexual nature, intimidation or bullying. It is also unwelcome sexual advances and promises of work-related awards in exchange for sexual favors. Sexual harassment usually occurs in the workplace, but may also occur in schools and public areas.

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the following is illegal:

Harassing an employee because of his or her gender
Making sexual slurs, advances, or requests for sexual favors
Physically or verbally harassing an employee in a sexual manner
Making offensive remarks about an employee’s gender
Teasing, making lewd comments, or creating a hostile work environment
In the workplace, a harasser can be an employee’s colleague, supervisor, client, or even customer. Regardless of whom the harasser is employees should file sexual harassment reports with their employers to put an end to the illegal behavior. If employers receive a sexual harassment complaint, it is their responsibility to take appropriate action. If they fail to act and the harassment continues, employees should seek help from an attorney with the experience and knowledge to protect their legal rights.

While sexual harassment is quite common in the work place it is not the only place it happens. Sexual harassment can happen to both adolescents and adults and can take place at nearly any location including schools, gyms, clubs and associations, and parks to name a few.
