There are two categories that encompass workplace sexual harassment:
- Quid Pro Quo harassment is when a superior may offer promotion or other considerations in exchange of sexual favors or acts. Sexual extortion is when a supervisor blackmails an employee with threats to the employee’s job or title.
- Hostile Work environment is where the organizational culture is at issue versus a specific event. The conduct would be considered severe or pervasive enough to create an intimidating, hostile or abusive work environment.
Harassment is typically a series of repeated acts which interfere with the work performance of a reasonable person. Examples may include slurs, assaults, threats, ridicule or insensitive display of pictures or offensive jokes. However, isolated events can fall under this purview if the harassing behavior is egregious or offensive.
