What Amounts to Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment can come from anyone in the workplace. Some employees are sexually harassed by their supervisors while others are mistreated by fellow employees.

In general, for a company to be held liable for sexual harassment, the harasser would need to be a manager or supervisor. Or, if the harasser is not a supervisor, the company would need to be aware of the harassment but fail to take action to intervene.

Examples of unlawful sexual harassment

  • Sexual innuendos
  • Direct or even indirect requests for unwanted sexual activity
  • Repeatedly asking a person out on dates
  • Intrusive sexually explicit questions
  • Unwanted or inappropriate touching
  • Spreading rumors about someone’s sexuality
  • Sexual ridicule
  • Making sexually suggestive sounds or gestures
  • Frequent jokes that are sexual in nature
  • Passing notes or sending emails that are sexual in nature
  • Stalking
  • Attempted or actual sexual assault

Victims of sexual harassment can be of any gender. Harassers may be the same or opposite gender of the victim. Knowing what to do if you are the victim is key to protecting your best interests.

Fighting Sexual Harassment

If you have already addressed your concerns with your employer and no action has been taken to rectify the problem, you may need to talk to a sexual harassment attorney. Your company may have a detailed procedure for handling these types of situations. If you are still employed, you should try to follow the company’s that procedure and make all complaints in writing.

Often, when our clients reach out to us, they have already quit their jobs because they believed quitting was the only way to stop the sexual harassment or sexual assault. Other times, our clients have been illegally fired or “laid off” after reporting sexual harassment. Regardless, Strong Advocates will help you fight back to hold your company accountable for these illegal actions. By pursuing legal action, you can help restore some of your power and be compensated for the financial, emotional and/or physical damage the company forced you to endure.

What Can I Do about Sexual Harassment or Workplace Discrimination?

If you file a workplace discrimination or sexual harassment lawsuit, your employer will often deny your claim with the assistance of his or her own legal representative. the burden to prove your allegation falls on you. This is why you must have strong evidence on hand. Follow these guidelines to ensure you have a strong claim:


Document and date any and all instances of sexual harassment and/or discrimination in the workplace. Keep notes as to who might have witnessed these events or whom you might have told. Keep copies of text messages, photos, emails or other documents that can help prove your experience.


Speak discreetly with co-workers or former co-workers you trust to see if they have experienced the same abuse. If so, you may have a joint case which would put greater pressure on your employer to settle the case early in your favor.


If you continue to work for the employer, make a written complaint, and be sure to keep a copy of the complaint for your own records. If you no longer work for the employer, retain an experienced Strong Advocates attorney to file a complaint with the appropriate authorities.


Keep a record of any retaliatory actions after you have filed a complaint. You can compare these actions with the employer's behavior prior to the complaint.
