What Are The Variations Of Sexual Harassment
You need to know the two types of method to commit sexual harassment that is legally recognized. 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. 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.
It is actually not important if the victim will be agreeing or giving on the offer when it comes to this type of sexual harassment. 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.
What is a hostile environment sexual harassment?
A hostile work environment sexual harassment meanwhile will happened in a workplace where in the supervisor or manager, and even the fellow workmates will be liable for the claims. 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. Staring, leering, glaring at another person is considered as a non-verbal sexual harassment. A visual sexual harassment will happen every time there will be sexually suggestive photographs, posters, cartoons, or calendars in the working environment.
