What federal laws govern sexual harassment cases?
In the United States, most federal sexual harassment laws fall under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. That’s because the federal government considers most sexual harassment cases to be a form of sex or gender discrimination. (It’s important to note that Title VII only applies primarily to companies with 15 or more employees.)
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency, investigates many sexual harassment complaints nationwide. Other complaints are investigated by various state agencies. Based on Title VII, the EEOC defines sexual harassment as:
- Unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace
- Inappropriate sexual contact at work
- Requests for sexual favors at work
- Physical conduct of a sexual nature at work
- Verbal sexual harassment
Federal sexual harassment laws are very clear about what constitutes as sexual harassment. When these laws are broken, the people or businesses responsible for such behavior must be held accountable for their actions. We can do that for you at our law firm.
