Sexual Harassment Lawyers Protect Civil Rights
The boss that pinches the back side of the assistant . . . the cubicle neighbor who posts photos or jokes of an offensive sexual nature . . . the supervisor who seduces an underling, and then demotes him when he refuses to continue the affair . . . are all examples of sexual harassment on the job. Contact the Houston employment law firm of SLS for an initial consultation if you are experiencing an uncomfortable situation on the job as a result of sexual harassment.
For over 40 years, sexual harassment at work has been explicitly prohibited as a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Despite nearly two generations of awareness and education on the topic, sexual harassment is still a reality for too many workers. Specifically, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines sexual harassment as follows:
“Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature . . . when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individuals’ work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.” (http:www.eeoc.gov/)
