How Do You Prove Sexual Harassment Occurred?
We will apply New Jersey and federal laws to protect you if you have been subjected to any type of sexual harassment on the job. Sexual harassment is generally described as falling into two types of behavior:
- Hostile work environment, including suggestive comments, posted offensive visual images, groping or leering.
- Quid pro quo sexual harassment, whereby an employee is explicitly or implicitly promised rewards or threatened with negative consequences on the basis of agreement (or not) to engage in sexual encounters with a supervisor, for example.
Sexual harassment is not the only type of illegal discrimination on the job. Other forms of illegal harassment may include harassment on the basis of religion, race or any inherent characteristic of a person.
