How do I know if I should make a sexual harassment claim?
- If you’re thinking about making a sexual harassment allegation, you should know the two types of legal claims recognized by federal law and most state law. One category concerns hostile work environments, which covers unwelcome comments or conduct of a sexual nature. The other is called quid pro quo, where your superior bases employment decisions on how you respond to sexual advances. An employment attorney in your area can help you determine how to proceed.
