Same-Sex Harassment Is Illegal
Same-sex harassment and discrimination can take several forms:
- Degrading or offensive comments
- Derogatory jokes, pictures, cartoons, etc.
- Demeaning or harassing conduct based on gender
Sexual orientation need not be an issue when employers evaluate claims of sexual discrimination or harassment. Regardless of gender or orientation, all individuals are held to the same legal standards regarding sexual harassment in the workplace. Simply being of the same gender as another does not give an individual permission to participate in behavior that would otherwise be unlawful.
Men and women should be able to work without suffering the humiliation, embarrassment or loss of dignity often associated with sexual discrimination and harassment. If you have suffered same-sex harassment or discrimination, you have legal options and remedies.
