Washington DC Sexual Harassment Attorney
Everyone Deserves to Have a Safe and Comfortable Work Environment
Harassment comes in many forms. Any form of speech or action that is pervasive enough to create a hostile or abusive work environment can be considered harassment. Some of the more commonly recognized forms are:
- Sexual harassment
- Sexual assault and violence
- Racial harassment
- Sexual orientation harassment
- Gender identification harassment
- Religious harassment
- Age harassment
- Disability harassment
- Harassment due to status as a veteran
- Harassment due to marital status
- Harassment due to political beliefs
- Retaliation because of filing a complaint against a co-worker or supervisor
None of these are acceptable behaviors on the part of your employer, supervisor or co-workers. Working in a hostile environment is not conducive to good performance, confidence or overall happiness. It is in your employer’s best interests to prevent this kind of behavior as much as it is in yours.

Sexual harassment is the most commonly thought of form of workplace harassment. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), “Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.” This includes requests for sexual favors in trade for advancement or continued employment, inappropriate comments, touching, demeaning or pornographic photographs being shared or posted, sexually oriented jokes, threats, sexual assault and violence.
