When you are a working professional, sexual harassment is a serious issue, and one that should not be taken lightly. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines this as any activity that includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and in general any verbal or physical conduct that explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, interferes with their work performance, or creates an intimidating, offensive, or hostile work environment.
Generally there are two types of sexual harassment claims: Quid Pro Quo (something for something), where an employer implies or explicitly uses sexual demands as a condition of employment (this can mean using sexual demands attached to raises or promotions), and those claims that create a hostile work environment - where an employer or colleague uses verbal or physical conduct (this can include inappropriate emails or photographs) that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment that prevents an employee’s ability to perform their job.
Often times in these situation a victim is apprehensive to report sexual harassment claims because they are fearful that their employer will retaliate against them. It is important to note that retaliation is illegal - if you have reported a sexual harassment claim and feel you have been the victim of retaliation you should report it immediately.
