Sexual harassment in New York and New Jersey is not limited to words alone.Often, an individual can be the target of sexual harassment by being touched on in an offensive or sexual manner without their consent, even if the touching does not involve the harasser’s hands (touching someone with an object, rubbing against an individual, standing too close as to violate your space, etc.).
By way of example, calling someone that has a dark complexion a monkey, calling woman a bitch, mimicking someone’s accent, calling a Muslim person a terrorist, calling someone Jewish cheap or asking if he has horns, making sexually explicit sounds, bringing nude photos or watching pornography on the computer are all acts that can intimidate and seriously disturb other individuals that are working to such an extent that one would conclude the work place to be permeated with a hostile work environment.
Sexual harassment can consist of many overt and subtle acts and words.
Sexual Harassment can start with what appears to be innocent remarks or even compliments like, you look good, you’re so sexy, and end up with rather harsh words like, I like your breast (t – – s), I want to touch you, you get me excited, etc.
Some demands can be even more perverted like demanding oral sex or sexual intercourse for good working conditions, to receive a raise, not to be written-up, or to keep a job.
Anytime a person’s work or working condition is made contingent upon a sexual act, it is illegal and constitutes sexual harassment, work in positions that are significantly inferior to the harasser, need their job to provide for themselves and their families, and/or have made a mistake at work which could have repercussions (including termination).
There are other forms of sexual harassment, one of which is known as Quid Pro Quo meaning “give me something for something in return”.
By way of example, a supervisor may tell a subordinate that he will give her a raise or a good review only if she goes out on a date with him.
At times, harassers will insult, demean and violate individuals with words or comments disguised as jokes or opinions.
If you become the target of unwanted sexual advances, harsh words, insults, threats, demeaning comments about your sex / gender, your looks, your body parts or if you have been touched in a manner that makes you feel uncomfortable, you have been sexually harassed and should speak to an sexual harassment attorney in New York City or New Jersey immediately.
