Sexual Harassment Attorneys in Utah
Utah Sexual Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on your gender. Sexual harassment typically occurs in one of two ways:
1. Enduring the offensive conduct is a condition of continued employment;
2. The conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a hostile work environment. Examples of the first type of sexual harassment may include being asked for sexual favors in exchange for receiving preferential scheduling or promotions. Examples of the second type of sexual harassment are work situations where pornography, sexual banter, or sexual innuendo is used with such frequency that you begin to experience anxiety or discomfort as a result of being exposed to it.
Sexual harassment is NOT a petty annoyance, one-time joke, or isolated incident unless the incident is very serious. To be unlawful, the conduct must rise to the level that would be offensive, hostile, or intimidating to a reasonable person.
