State and federal labor laws prohibit employees from being discriminated against based on their race, ethnicity, gender, age, pregnancy, disability, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.

Types Of Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment can happen to women and men at work. It is important to understand that you have rights and do not have to be subjected to this abusive and despicable behavior. Some common types of sexual harassment include:
- Quid pro quo: Change in job status based on submitting or objecting to sexual favors or advances or inappropriate comments.
- Hostile environment: Being subjected to personal sexual questions, offensive comments, sexual explicit images or physical conduct.
Does your boss or supervisor expect or ask for sexual favors? When you refuse, does your employer retaliate, by demotion, termination or disparate treatment?
