Sexual harassment is one form of sex discrimination. While sexual harassment may be one of the most pervasive forms, discrimination is not always gender-based or sexual in nature; it can also be based on race, ethnicity, age, religion, disability, or medical condition. All are equally viable claims under federal and state discrimination laws.
Perpetrators of sexual harassment may be colleagues, managers, supervisors or even third parties. If you have been subject to any of the following, then you may have a valid claim for sexual harassment:
- Unwanted advances
- Inappropriate jokes
- Suggestive or sexual teasing
- Touching, or
- If your boss conditioned a promotion on a sexual act
