Sexual Harassment

Title VII prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace. Generally, there are two

types of sexual harassment that are illegal under Title VII:

1. “Quid Pro Quo” harassment: This type of harassment includes “unwanted sexual advances, request for sexual favors.” It is illegal for someone in management to make expressly, or implicitly, make your participation in this type of conduct a condition of continued employment or to affect the terms of your employment

2. “Hostile Work Environment” harassment: This includes any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical sexual conduct of a nature that unreasonably interferes with your ability to do your job, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.
