Sexual harassment is a form of workplace harassment.  There are two general types of sexual harassment:
 
Quid pro quo:  In a quid pro quo situation, an employer requests or demands sexual favorsin exchange for employment benefits, such a raise, promotion, additional responsibility, or even retention of employment.
 
Hostile work environment:  A sexually hostile work environment can include jeering, teasing, sexual references, sexual images, touching and threats.
 
Both forms of sexual harassment are prohibited by federal law (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964) and state law (Pennsylvania Human Relations Act - PHRA).  Further, workplace harassment and sexual harassment that includes unwanted touching or threats of unwanted touching can give rise to claims for assault and battery. 
 
If you are the victim of sexual harassment you may be able to recover:
  • Compensation for humiliation, embarassment and emotional distress for having to endure the sexually hostle work environment
  • Punitive damages to punish the illegal conduct
  • Back pay when the refusal to grant sexual favors or submit to sexual advances results in layoff, firing or demotion
