What Is Sexual Harassment?
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:
- Submission to such conduct was made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment,
- Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual was used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or
- Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
1. and 2. are called quid pro quo harassment while 3. is considered hostile work environment sexual harassment. They are essentially sexual bribery, sexual coercion or the promising of some tangible or intangible benefit in exchange for sex.
Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment
Hostile work environment sexual harassment occurs when an employee is subjected to comments of a sexual nature, unwelcome physical contact or offensive sexual materials as a regular part of the work environment. For the most part, a single isolated incident will not be enough to prove hostile environment harassment unless it involves extremely outrageous and egregious conduct. The courts will try to decide whether the conduct is both "serious" and "frequent." Supervisors, managers, coworkers and even customers can be responsible for creating a hostile environment.
The line between quid pro quo harassment and hostile environment sexual harassment is not always clear and the two forms of harassment often occur together.
For example, when an employee's job conditions are affected by a sexually hostile work environment and it results in a constructive discharge while at the same time, a supervisor who makes sexual advances toward a subordinate employee may communicate an implicit threat to retaliate against her if she does not comply.
Hostile environment harassment may acquire characteristics of quid pro quo harassment if the offending supervisor abuses his authority over employment decisions to force the victim to endure or participate in the sexual conduct. Sexual harassment may culminate in a retaliatory discharge if a victim tells the harasser or her employer she will no longer submit to the harassment, and is then fired in retaliation for this protest.

Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
Sexual harassment is intimidation, workplace bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, including unwelcome or inappropriate sexual advances. It can include a range of behavior from seemingly mild and annoying to actual sexual abuse or sexual assault. Sexual harassment is a form of illegal workplace discrimination and is also a form of sexual and psychological abuse and workplace bullying.
In light of numerous multi-million dollar sexual harassment settlements, for many businesses, preventing sexual harassment and defending the company and its employees from sexual harassment charges has become a key component of their decision-making process.
Thousands of employees file lawsuits against their employers each year claiming they were sexually harassed. Many of these people may have lost their jobs and as a result, are now experiencing dire financial consequences as they try to wait patiently for their lawsuit to settle. However, mounting bills and the threat of financial disaster can make patience difficult or impossible. As one of America's lawsuit funding leaders, TriMark Legal Funding LLC is ready to work with plaintiffs who are currently involved in, or who have recently settled their employment litigation.
Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment
Quid pro quo is Latin for "this for that". In the workplace, quid pro quo harassment occurs when any type of job benefit is directly tied to an employee submitting to, or participating in, unwelcome sexual advances. For example, a supervisor promises an employee a raise if she will go out on a date with him, or tells an employee she will be fired if he or she doesn't engage in sexual relations with him. Quid pro quo sexual harassment also occurs when an employee makes an evaluative decision, or provides or withholds professional opportunities based on another employee's submission to verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
Quid pro quo harassment is equally unlawful whether the victim refuses to submit to, or participate in, the proposed sexual activity and suffers the threatened harm or if the employee actually submits to it and thus avoids the threatened harm.
Sexual Harassment In The Workplace Cases Require EEOC Complaint
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of employment discrimination and it's illegal. If you have filed a sexual harassment lawsuit, you must have filed a claim with EEOC and be in possession of an EEOC "right to sue" letter.
