Sexual harassment is unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature. Although sexual harassment can come in a wide variety of specific forms, sexual harassment cases generally fit into one of two broad legal categories:
Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment: Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when an employee is pressured into giving sexual favors/accepting sexual advances in exchange for a benefit or to avoid punishment.
Hostile Work Environment Sexual Harassment: Hostile work environment sexual harassment occurs when an employee has been made to feel unsafe or unwelcome in the workplace due to sexual-related conduct. To constitute a hostile work environment under the law, the harassing behavior must be “severe or pervasive.”
