Sexual Harassment by a Supervisor/Manager

Chicago Sexual Harassment Attorney

Experiencing sexual harassment at the hands of a supervisor, manager or other employee who is your superior can put you in an extremely difficult position. You may be concerned about being demoted or fired if you tell the harasser that his conduct is offensive and unwanted. You may fear retaliation if you report harassment to Human Resources. Sexual harassment is actionable if it is severe, pervasive or frequent. Harassment can be physical or verbal. Some examples of sexual harassment include inappropriate and unwelcome touching, sexual battery, making sexual comments or innuendoes and making threats of demotion or other penalties if an employee does not perform sexual favors.
