Do Not Be Victimized by Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Under federal law, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace. Meanwhile, NJ’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD) also prohibits sexual harassment. Often sexual harassment is a form of employment discrimination.

Sexual harassment is inappropriate and unwelcome conduct that is sexual in nature. There are two main types of sexual harassment: quid pro quo and hostile work environment.

  • Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment: An employer cannot link the condition of employment to sexual conduct.
  • Hostile Work Environment Sexual Harassment: An employer also has an obligation to prevent supervisors and employees from engaging in actions or uttering words that make an employee feel uncomfortable because of his or her sex.

Both federal and state laws prohibit an employer from retaliating against you simply because you filed a sexual harassment complaint. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 includes anti-retaliation provisions that protect employees against employer retaliation for reporting sexual harassment. The NJ Law Against Discrimination (LAD) also protects employees against retaliation for reporting claims of harassment. If your employer fires you or otherwise retaliates against you for complaining of harassment, you may have a separate retaliation claim against your employer.
