  • Sexual jokes
  • Lewd acts
  • Talk of superiority of one gender
  • Verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature

Hostile Work Environments

Sexual harassment can occur between any types of people, gender does not have to play a role, and a sexual harassment victim doesn't necessarily have to be the person to whom the inappropriate behavior was directed. There are two specific types of sexual harassment that have been defined for legal purposes: quid pro quo and hostile work environment. Quid pro quo translates to this for that; in a sexual harassment case, it is used to define a sexual request that is made suggesting that the victim will be somehow compensated for complying with the request. A hostile work environment created by sexual harassment means that the victim fears going to work because of intimidating or harassing behavior.
