Sexual harassment in the workplace is no joke

| Employment Law, Hostile Workplace

Sexual harassment is a serious area of employment law that affects both men and women. Beasley Allen lawyer Lauren Miles says sexual harassment doesn’t necessarily mean the action is specifically sexual in nature, but is more of a feeling of discomfort. Examples include feeling pressured to accept a date with someone in power or being the target of suggestive or offensive comments. Sexual harassment usually involves a supervisor or someone else with authority threatening negative job impacts – like being passed over for promotion, demoted or even fired – if advances are refused. Co-workers may also contribute to a hostile work environment by sexually harassing another employee, especially when the employee feels they cannot complain to their supervisor or HR, or their complaint is ignored or invalidated.
