Sexual Harassment is Illegal

Illinois & Federal law protects individuals against discrimination based on sexually explicit behavior:  Sexual harassment includes:

  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature

Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including but not limited to the following:

  • The victim as well as the harasser may be a woman or a man. The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex
  • The harasser can be the victim’s supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or a non-employee
  • The victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct
  • Unlawful sexual harassment may occur without economic injury to or discharge of the victim

Under Illinois law, unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment if the conduct affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
