Harassment And Discrimination Takes Many Forms

Many people hesitate to speak up or take legal action because they are not sure the behavior is illegal. If the conduct creates a hostile work environment or threatens your employment status, it crosses the line. Employment discrimination can refer to differential treatment in hiring, job assignments, pay, promotions, and disciplinary action. It can also refer to:

  • Sexual harassment: unwanted touching, sexual advances, lewd comments, and other sexualized behavior

  • Quid pro quo harassment: demands for sex in exchange for special perks or keeping your job

  • Stalking and cyberstalking: following you or contacting you in an unwelcome manner outside of work

  • Personal harassment: physical harassment and other forms of bullying
