Information on the Law

Our firm is committed to serving the community. As such, we want you to know what constitutes sexual harassment. Massachusetts Law Chapter 151B Section 3A goes into detail on how employers are required to address sexual harassment and defines these laws to protect victims of all gender and sexual orientation from such abuse.

Specifically, sexual harassment does not have to include physical touching or sexual assault. Sexual harassment is often verbal. Sometimes it is obvious, such as sending photographs containing nudity or making inappropriate sexual comments. However, sexual harassment can also include less obvious examples. Under certain circumstances, a supervisor or co-worker making jokes of a lewd or offensive nature can be construed as sexual harassment under the law.

Focused on protecting employees from such misconduct, the law strives to ensure that the workplace never becomes a hostile environment. If your workplace has become a hostile environment based on sexual “jokes,” comments, or conduct, Davis & Davis, P.C. is ready to help.

Serving Victims of All Ages, Backgrounds & Orientations

It is important for victims of sexual harassment to fully understand that our Boston sexual harassment lawyers can provide support in all of the situations above, and more. It is unfortunate, but all too often a victim of harassment does not fully recognize his or her rights and ends up suffering and keeping quiet rather than addressing their concerns.

Some people falsely assume that the law only protects heterosexual sexual harassment, such as a man sexually harassing a woman. This is simply not true.

In fact, there has been a steady increase in the amount of same-sex sexual harassment claims. For example, if a male supervisor “teases” and “jokes” with a male subordinate that he is homosexual, that individual may be eligible to bring a claim for sexual harassment, regardless of his sexual orientation. The same is true of a female superior teasing a female subordinate.

Remember, sexual harassment is defined as verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is unwelcome and has the purpose or effect of creating a hostile work environment. Harassment interferes with the employee’s ability to perform his or her job and should never be tolerated.
