Sexual Harassment Overview
Sexual harassment occurs in the work place and it happens when one party requests sexual acts, presents unwanted sexual solicitations, or makes sexual verbal and/or physical gestures. Sexual harassment may occur between peers, a manager and employee, or co-workers. Victims of sexual harassment can be male or female, of the opposite sex, or the same sex. After sexual harassment occurs, whether it is one incident or many, victims often feel manipulated and scared. For the receiving party, these advances are unwanted, devastating, and upsetting.
Signs of Sexual Harassment
There are many signs of sexual harassment in the workplace. Some common sexual harassment signs include:
- unwanted physical contact
- crude sexual jokes
- unwelcome sexual remarks
- sexual gestures
- verbal threats
- sexual slander
- displaying sexually suggestive images
If someone is experiencing sexual harassment in his/her work environment, he/she should keep an active record of all sexual inferences. The person should also report the harassment to his/her company’s human resources department or upper management. This behavior should never be tolerated or kept secret. By reporting sexual harassment, victims spare them selves from further exploitation, unwanted sexual behavior, and crude comments.
Sexual Harassment and Personal Injury Law
Sexual harassment leaves victims feeling violated, helpless, hopeless, and offended. If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation from your harasser. New York personal injury law allows victims of sexual harassment to file a lawsuit against liable parties to recover damages for their lost wages, emotional pain, and daily suffering.
