What Are The Variations Of Sexual Harassment
You should be aware of the different types of method that is recognized legally as ways to commit sexual harassment. The two different methods of ways that are legally recognized in committing sexual harassment are the quid pro quo sexual harassment, and the hostile environment sexual harassment.
More information about the quid pro quo sexual harassment.
A quid pro quo sexual harassment will happen if an employee will be offered to keep his or her job in exchange for some sexual favors. A quid pro quo sexual harassment can also be applied to students who are asked for a sexual favor in exchange for favorable recommendations or good grades. The managers, supervisors, teachers, professors are some of the people that usually commit quid pro quo sexual harassment since they have the power to manipulate the educational situation or employment status of the victim. One example of a quid pro quo sexual harassment is when a student will be asked by his or her teacher on a date and then will be given good grades in exchange for a rub on the back or neck.
When it comes to this type of sexual harassment, it is really not important if the victim will agree or give in to the offer. It is already enough that the harasser will make or float the offer and the victim will be able to file a claim even if he or she will be changing his or her mind later on.
Things to know about a hostile environment sexual harassment.
On the other hand, a hostile work environment sexual harassment will be taking place in a working environment which will be involving the employees, or the manager or supervisor of that business or company. Once a co-worker or the manager or supervisor of a company or business will be making unwelcome sexual advances that will really change the mood in the workplace or if a student will not be comfortable because of the offensive or hostile learning environment, there is a case of a hostile work environment sexual harassment. The sexual harassment that will be done can be non-verbal or verbal, and physical or visual. Every time there will be a sexual comment on the clothes, looks, and anatomy of a person coming from another person, then that is verbal harassment. An example of a non-verbal sexual harassment is when a person will be glaring, leering, or starting at another person. A visual sexual harassment happens in a workplace where there are calendars, cartoons, photographs, and posters that are sexually suggestive being displayed. A physical sexual harassment will happen every time another person will be giving a massage to a victim who will find it offensive because he or she did not ask for it.
That is why it is really important for the victim to be aware about this. This cases will really require you to hire the service of a lawyer.
