Understanding Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment encompasses a wide range of unwelcome behaviors of a sexual nature, including:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Inappropriate comments or gestures
  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Displaying sexually explicit materials
  • Creating a hostile work or educational environment based on gender

You do not have to face these challenges alone. Our skilled employment law attorneys will stand by your side to help you fight for your rights.

Title IX Claims

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs and activities. This includes sexual harassment in schools and universities. If you have experienced sexual harassment in an academic setting, including harassment by peers, teachers or staff members, our attorneys can help you understand your rights under Title IX and take appropriate legal action.

Recognizing And Addressing Quid Pro Quo Harassment

Quid pro quo harassment occurs when employment benefits or educational opportunities are conditioned on submitting to sexual advances or favors. It is essential to recognize quid pro quo harassment and take action to address it.

If you believe you are experiencing quid pro quo harassment, it is crucial to document the behavior and report it to your employer or school administration. Our employment law attorneys can guide you through filing a complaint and seeking justice for the harassment you have endured.

Identifying Sexual Harassment At School

Sexual harassment in educational settings can manifest in various ways, including:

  • Inappropriate comments or jokes of a sexual nature
  • Unwanted touching or physical contact
  • Cyberbullying or harassment through electronic communication
  • Exclusion or isolation based on gender or sexual orientation

If you suspect that you or someone you know is experiencing sexual harassment at school, it is essential to speak up and seek support from trusted adults or authorities. Our attorneys can help you understand your options for addressing sexual harassment and advocating for your rights under Title IX.

Recognizing Subtle Sexual Harassment

Subtle sexual harassment can be challenging to identify but is no less harmful than overt harassment. Signs of subtle harassment may include:

  • Comments or jokes that seem harmless but have sexual undertones
  • Persistent compliments or attention that makes you uncomfortable
  • Unwanted physical contact or invasion of personal space

If you suspect that you are experiencing subtle sexual harassment in the workplace or educational environment, it is essential to trust your instincts and speak up. Our attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of subtle harassment and take action to protect your rights.
