Sexual harassment as defined by the law can take one of two forms. The first form involves a tangible loss. For instance, if your superior demands sex in exchange for keeping your job or securing a promotion, and you refuse – and you are demoted or fired or the promotion is denied – you have a tangible loss in the form of lost earnings.
The second form does not necessarily involve a tangible adverse effect, but it is still illegal. If you experience severe or pervasive harassment, suffering from the effects of employee misconduct and a hostile work environment, you may have an actionable harassment claim.
