Sexual Harassment

Minneapolis Sexual Harassment Lawyers

Sexual HarassmentNo one should have to tolerate sexual harassment to make a living or advance his or her career. At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, a Minneapolis, Minnesota, employment law firm, we are dedicated to helping employees who have been sexually harassed, advocating zealously on their behalf.

Sexual harassment in the workplace can be difficult to define and difficult to prove. An experienced Minneapolis employment lawyer can offer practical advice and protect your right to work harassment free.

Sexual harassment is generally classified into two categories:

Quid Pro Quo: In Latin, “quid pro quo” translates to “something for something.” This type of sexual harassment occurs when a boss or supervisor offers an employee some kind of benefit – a raise, promotion or better working conditions – in exchange for a sexual favor. It can also occur when an employer threatens to deny an employee of a benefit if you refuse to provide a sexual favor.

Hostile Work Environment: Sexual harassment does not stem only from an express request for a sexual favor. Sexual misconduct can lead to a work environment that would be considered severely unpleasant and offensive to a reasonable person.

Sexual harassment may take the form of:

  • Repeated sexual advances
  • Offensive remarks and comments
  • Demeaning sexual inquiries or vulgarities
  • Obscene jokes, photos or graffiti
  • Sexually abusive notes, letters or emails
  • Unwanted physical contact
  • Implicit or explicit demands for sexual favors
