The Different Types Of Sexual Harassment
You should be aware of the different types of method that is recognized legally as ways to commit sexual harassment. The two different methods of ways that are legally recognized in committing sexual harassment are the quid pro quo sexual harassment, and the hostile environment sexual harassment.
More information about the quid pro quo sexual harassment.
A quid pro quo sexual harassment will happen if an employee will be offered to keep his or her job in exchange for some sexual favors. A quid pro quo sexual harassment can also be applied to students who are asked for a sexual favor in exchange for favorable recommendations or good grades. A person that will be able to have authority to influence the employment status and educational situation of a victim usually commits quid pro quo sexual harassment such as the professors, teachers, supervisors, and managers. One example is if a manager or a teacher would ask his or her employee or student out on a date an then would provide a promotion or good grade in exchange for a back or neck rub.
When it comes to this type of sexual harassment, it is really not important if the victim will agree or give in to the offer. It is already enough that the harasser will make or float the offer and the victim will be able to file a claim even if he or she will be changing his or her mind later on.
Knowing more about hostile environment sexual harassment.
While on the other hand, a hostile work environment sexual harassment will happen in a workplace which will involve either the workmates or the manager/supervisor of a company or business. There will be a case of hostile work environment sexual harassment in students if they will feel that their learning environment is offensive and hostile, as well as in a workplace where there is an interference in the performance of work due to the sexual advances made by the manager or supervisor, as well as the co-workers. The sexual harassment that will be done can be non-verbal or verbal, and physical or visual. There is a verbal harassment done every time another person will be making sexual comments on the looks, anatomy, and clothes of another person. Non-verbal sexual harassment will occur every time a person will be leering, glaring, or staring at another person. A visual sexual harassment happens in a workplace where there are calendars, cartoons, photographs, and posters that are sexually suggestive being displayed. A physical sexual harassment will happen every time another person will be giving a massage to a victim who will find it offensive because he or she did not ask for it.
