Sexual Intimidation in the Workplace

Southern California Sexual Harassment Lawyers

Sexual intimidation in the workplace consists of unreasonable behavior that is sexual in nature which may be verbal or non-verbal which results in humiliation, embarrassment, or discomfort for the victim. An employee may be sexually intimidated by a supervisor who implies that her job, promotion, or other benefits may be dependent on the exchange of sexual favors. Other examples of sexual intimidation may be stereotypical remarks about the abilities of men or women, derogatory comments about women in general, degrading or suggestive comments about a woman's body or appearance, discussions or jokes of an explicit sexual nature, sexually explicit emails, phone calls, pictures, or other material, or any other type of unwelcome sexual conduct.

In general, sexual harassment is sexual intimidation, ranging from mild annoyances at one end to the extreme of sexual assault or rape at the other. If you believe you have been the victim of sexual intimidation in the workplace, you should seek relief by reporting it to your employer.
