Sexual harassment in the workplace is generally categorized as “quid pro quo” and “hostile environment.” The former occurs where sex is made a precondition for promotions, job continuance appraisal, or any other workplace benefit. The latter involves unwanted sexual comments, sexual gestures both physical like touching, and visual. Many companies do not have policies to protect against sexual harassment and those that do, may have inadequate policies which are not enforced.
While workplace sexual harassment cases are not uncommon, they can be very difficult to prove in court. Often times, employees are unwilling to come forward because of feelings of embarrassment or because they suffer from severe depression caused by the sexual harassment and want to avoid reliving the experience. Therefore, a certain level of sensitivity is needed to represent victims of workplace sexual harassment.
