Verbal Harassment: Sexual Harassment at Work

Chicago Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Sexual harassment is not limited to physical harassment; verbal harassment can be just as harmful, creating a hostile or offensive work environment for the victim. If you have experienced verbal sexual harassment or have been retaliated against for reporting such harassment, we may be able to help you.

Types of Verbal Harassment

Following are some examples of acts that may be considered verbal harassment:

  • Asking inappropriate and personal questions about your sex life or sexual orientation
  • Making comments about the way you look or dress
  • Telling jokes of a sexual nature
  • Making sexual innuendoes or other sexually suggestive remarks in your presence
  • Making threats if you do not perform sexual favors, accept a date, etc.

If you have experienced or witnessed any type of verbal sexual harassment at work, contact an experienced attorney to learn what remedies may be available to you.
