New Jersey Attorneys Defending Your Right to a Comfortable Workplace
We should all be able to go to work without facing sexual coercion or harassment. If this hasn’t been the case for you, we are here to help. At Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law, our New Jersey employment lawyers represent victims of two main types of sexual harassment: quid pro quo and hostile work environments.
Quid Pro Quo
Quid pro quo is Latin for “this for that” and occurs when a supervisor propositions a subordinate for sex, sexual contact, or sexual favors in exchange for advancement, or as a condition of employment. Whether your superior offered you a promotion in exchange for a date or threatened to fire you if you did not comply with their sexual advances, you may have been the victim of quid pro quo harassment.
If you have been harmed by this type of behavior, you are likely eligible for compensation. Contact us today for more information.
Hostile Work Environment
If going to work is difficult or uncomfortable due to discrimination, your workplace may be considered a hostile work environment. This type of harassment occurs when unwelcome comments based on a person’s protected characteristics interfere with an employee’s work performance. Hostile work environments can also include unwelcome touching, physical or verbal threats, and the display of inappropriate photographs or content. Protected characteristics include, but are not limited to:
- Sexual Orientation
If your workplace feels intimidating or offensive due to the words or actions of a co-worker, supervisor, contractor, client, vendor, or visitor; you are likely experiencing a hostile work environment.
