What is sexual harassment law?

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an employment, unreasonably interferes with an work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.

Sexual harassment attorneys may also represent employers, school districts, and businesses that are named defendants in sexual harassment lawsuits.
