Sexual harassment can and does happen in the workplace. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Even offensive remarks about gender are considered sexual harassment. Both men and women can be victims of sexual harassment, and you can be sexually harassed by someone of the same sex.
Sexual harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or if you are fired or demoted because of the sexual harassment. The attorneys at Sobel, Wade & Mapley have experience representing clients who have been victims of sexual harassment at work, including men, women, and transgender individuals, and clients who were terminated for reporting that others were the victims of sexual harassment.
