Handling Sexual Harassment Claims in New Jersey

There are two types of sexual harassment claims. Quid pro quo sexual harassment involves one employee forcing another to submit to a sexual advance in exchange for a promotion, a raise or another benefit. The second involves activities that turn the workplace into a hostile work environment. For example, physical contact, unwelcome requests or inappropriate images in the workplace can create a hostile environment.
