Understanding the law on Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment, sexual misconduct/assault, and gender discrimination are unlawful under state and federal law. No one should have to be subjected to offensive words and conduct in the workplace. Good employers strive to provide employees with a safe working environment free from the hostility and distress that unwanted sexual words and conduct can create. Even in those rare cases where co-workers engage in a consensual relationship, the employer can be liable if the subordinate employee is pressured into the relationship by a supervisor or someone in a position of power, or becomes offended by it and suffers adverse consequences for saying “no”.
