A cat call on the street can be irritating, but sexual harassment at work creates a hostile work environment that can impact every aspect of a person's life. At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we are committed to representing people who have been victims of sexual harassment.

What Is Sexual Harassment?

While a wide range of actions can be considered sexual harassment, it typically involves two types:

  • Quid pro quo sexual harassment — This involves unwelcome sexual advances where the consequences of rejection implicitly or explicitly impact an individual's employment or advancement opportunities.
  • Hostile work environment — This includes any verbal or physical actions that create a threatening or offensive work environment.

Sexual harassment can involve a wide range of unwelcome actions, from offering employment for sex and graphic comments about someone's body to physical contact of a sexual nature and targeting a person for special treatment based on his or her sex. The most common type of sexual harassment involves a male harassing a female. However, incidents of women harassing men and same-sex harassment are increasing.
