Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination. There are many examples of sexual harassment. It may not be evident that it has occurred until a pattern is discovered, while other times it’s obvious. It can be a single incident or many that together create a hostile work environment. It may even be in the form of retaliation. The harasser may be your boss, co-worker, client, or vendor. The conduct does not have to be sexual in nature, and may include offensive remarks about another’s sex. If you feel you have been victimized, consulting a skilled sexual harassment attorney is your first and best option.
