Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when either: The conduct is made as a term or condition of an individual's employment. Sexual harassment could be quid pro quo meaning that the employer requires sexual favors as a condition of the employment, and failure to do so will result in termination. The other type of sexual harassment is a hostile work environment. A hostile work environment is created where coworkers or supervisors contribute to an environment of harassment.
In California, the employer remains strictly liable for sexual harassment made by supervisors. If the harasser is a supervisor or part of the management team, then the employer remains liable.
The employer is also liable for the sexual harassment by another employee, if the employer has knowledge of the sexual harassment.
