Sexual harassment is a sensitive topic that a lot of people don’t like to talk about. Don’t be embarrassed. If you are being harassed, it is not your fault.
There are two basic forms of sexual harassment: quid pro quo and hostile work environment.
Quid pro quo is when a boss or superior tries to bribe you into providing a sexual favor. For example, the person in power might offer you a promotion or threaten to cut your hours, depending on whether you do the favor.
In a hostile work environment, a manager or co-worker will make you feel uncomfortable at work because of your sex. This might be because of constant sexual remarks, unwelcome advances or physical contact.
We can help you put a stop to the harassment and make your employer pay for putting you through it.
