There is no place for sexual harassment in the workplace. It violates workers' rights, it keeps them from reaching their full potential, and it creates a terrible working environment for all involved. At Clark & Krevsky, LLC, we handle sexual harassment and hostile work environment claims for individuals throughout Pennsylvania.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment is just one form of workplace discrimination. It includes unwelcome advances by a workplace superior, known as "quid pro quo" harassment, that make job decisions (workplace discipline, evaluation, job assignments, promotion, pay increases, etc.) conditioned on a female subordinate's submission to or rejection of sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other behavior of a sexual nature. It also includes "hostile work environment" discrimination, where unwelcome verbal, non-verbal, or physical behavior of a prohibited nature is so severe and pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with an employee's work or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment to a reasonable person. Quid pro quo discrimination deals with tangible actions, while a hostile environment standard focuses on the "poisoning" of the working environment.
At Clark & Krevsky, LLC, we have the experience and depth of knowledge to handle a wide range of sexual harassment and discrimination claims, including:
- Hostile work environments
- Unwelcome comments or requests for sexual favors
- Quid pro quo
- Pregnancy discrimination
Sexual harassment is disruptive to the workplace. A woman experiencing sexual harassment is likely to experience personal stress, lose fulfillment in her job and become a less productive worker. If you are a female facing sexual harassment on the job, do not hesitate to contact an employment attorney to learn about protecting your rights.
