Unlawful sexual harassment can occur in many different situations. Typically, sexual harassment takes place when an employer, supervisor, client or co-worker elicits sexual favors in exchange for employment benefits, uses sexual advances to create a hostile work environment, or engages in sexual misconduct that affects a person’s work performance or employment status.
Sexual harassment can include sexual gestures, sexual advances, inappropriate jokes or comments, sexual images, unwanted touching, or assault.
Sexual Harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII applies to employers with 15 or more employees, as well as employment agencies, labor organizations, and the federal government.
North Carolina State Law also has provisions protecting employees from sexual harassment and demanding that all employees have the right to work in a setting free from sexual harassment and retaliation.
If you are experiencing sexual harassment, you have the right to ask for it to stop or file a complaint within your workplace, such as with Human Resources. However, if the harassment continues or you experience retaliation as a result of your complaint, you may have a federal claim.
