The Different Types Of Sexual Harassment
There are two different types of methods of ways that are legally recognized in committing sexual harassment. They are the quid pro sexual harassment, and the hostile environment harassment.
More information about the quid pro quo sexual harassment.
An employee that will be asked for some sexual favors in order to keep his or her job is under the case of a quid pro quo sexual harassment. There is also a quid pro quo sexual harassment happening in cases where a student will be given favorable recommendations or good grades in exchange for any sexual favor. The managers, supervisors, teachers, professors are some of the people that usually commit quid pro quo sexual harassment since they have the power to manipulate the educational situation or employment status of the victim. One example of a quid pro quo sexual harassment is when a student will be asked by his or her teacher on a date and then will be given good grades in exchange for a rub on the back or neck.
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. The victim can file a case once the person that will commit the sexual harassment will make or float an offer even if he or she will be changing his or her decision later on.
What is a 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. Once a co-worker or the manager or supervisor of a company or business will be making unwelcome sexual advances that will really change the mood in the workplace or if a student will not be comfortable because of the offensive or hostile learning environment, there is a case of a hostile work environment sexual harassment. The sexual harassment can be physical or visual, or non-verbal or verbal. An example of a verbal sexual harassment is every time a person will be making a sexual comment on the clothing, looks, and anatomy of another person. An example of a non-verbal sexual harassment is when a person will be glaring, leering, or starting at another person. Every time there will be sexually suggestive calendars, cartoons, photographs, and posters that will be displayed in a workplace, then there is visual sexual harassment. Every time a person will be giving another person a massage even if that person did not ask for it and might find it offensive, then that is a physical sexual harassment.
