Morgantown Sexual Harassment Attorney
Have You Been a Victim of Sexual Harassment at Work?
Both state and federal law prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace. These laws are intended to protect employees from harassment based upon their sex. No employee should be afraid to go to work out of fear of being sexually harassed. Equally, no employee should be denied the benefits of a job because they refused to submit to the sexual demands of the boss. Sexual harassment is unlawful, and we make sure that a victim’s voice is heard.
What is Sexual Harassment?
To constitute sexual harassment, a perpetrator’s conduct must be unwelcomed, severe (serious), and pervasive (wide-spread). It includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexually harassing conduct violates the law when it:
- is made a term or condition of an individual's employment or is exchanged for job benefits;
- is used as the basis for employment decisions; or
- unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
Sexual harassment takes many forms. It can include direct conduct, such as physical touching, propositions, and sexual comments. However, sexual harassment can also include sexual innuendo and insinuation. Whether conduct falls within the definition of sexual harassment depends on the particular circumstances, including the nature of the harassment and context in which it occurred.
