Sexual harassment can happen in many forms, and not everyone knows when their rights have been violated. Inappropriate touching, increased scrutiny or criticism, special treatment, and sexually explicit jokes or text messages may fall under the category of sexual harassment. There are two categories of sexual harassment: quid pro quo sexual harassment and hostile work environment based on sex.
Quid pro quo, is a Latin phrase which means "something for something." When it comes to sexual harassment in the workplace, it usually involves sexual favors in exchange for special treatment. This type of behavior is illegal and should be brought to the attention of a supervisor. If the conduct does not stop, or if it is a supervisor who is the harasser, the employee should consult with an attorney.
The other category of sexual harassment, a hostile work environment based on sex, occurs when an employee is subjected to unwelcome advances, sexual innuendos, or offensive gender-related language that is sufficiently severe or pervasive from the perspective of a reasonable person of the same gender as the offended employee. This type of harassment must be sufficiently pervasive or severe to alter the conditions of the offended employee's employment and create an abusive environment.
