Sexual Harassment


Sexual harassment is a type of sex discrimination that includes inappropriate sexual comments, unwelcome sexual advances, groping and unwanted touching, and/or soliciting sexual acts or favors.

In addition to creating a hostile work environment and damaging employee morale, sexual harassment lawsuits often take a huge financial toll on an organization. For example, in 2011 a jury in St. Louis, Missouri decided to award $95 million to a former Aaron's employee who was sexually harassed by her boss.

Employees who want to sue their employer for sexual harassment need to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC will investigate the sexual harassment charge and will either file a discrimination lawsuit against the employer or will issue the complainant a "Notice-of-Right-to-Sue" letter so that the employee can proceed and file a lawsuit against their employer.

People should consult with an employment lawyer or with the EEOC before deciding to file a sexual harassment lawsuit against their boss or employer. Click here to find an employment lawyer.

Of course, it's best for people to try to avoid sexually hostile workplaces altogether. This is why it's so important for people to rate their bosses so that job seekers can research potential employers on sites like the eBossWatch National Sexual Harassment Registry before accepting a job offer.
