SEXUAL HARASSMENT LAWYERS IN BIRMINGHAM

It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex.

 

 

Harassment may be in the form of unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

 

Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature; however, and can include offensive remarks about a person’s sex, such as making offensive comments about women in general.

 

Both the victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex.

 

There are two general types of sexual harassment claims:

 

Quid pro quo sexual harassment: when employment decisions – like promotions, are based on your willingness to submit to the sexual harassment.

 

Hostile work environment claims: when sexual harassment makes your workplace environment intimidating, hostile, or offensive.
