Men Can Also Be Victims of Sexual Harassment
While sexual harassment is often thought of as an offense against women, men are just as likely to be victims.

However, when you are harassed, you have nothing to be ashamed of, and you can trust our attorneys to guide you through the legal process and protect your rights. Call the expert lawyers of Heins Law Office at 866-241-8444 to discover your legal rights.
Quid Pro Quo Harassment Cases
Quid pro quo means "this for that", and is a legal phrase used to refer to sexual cases involving the exchange or denial of employment benefits based on sexual requests or situations. For example, an employee is fired after refusing to go out with his or her employer multiple times. Or, an employee is told he or she will receive a promotion or a raise in exchange for a sexual favor. Being harassed at your workplace is traumatizing. If you have experienced quid pro quo harassment, call the Milwaukee area employment law attorneys at Heins Law Office for a free initial consultation.

Important Facts for Employees
- When there is a disparity of power, employment harassment can easily occur, as in cases between highly segregated management and employees.
- One situation of sexual touching which is unwelcome is offensive enough to be not only a lawsuit claim, but also criminally offensive.
- When employers abusively treat one sex, whether behaviorally or verbally, the abusive behavior can be considered sexual harassment even if the abuse is not overtly sexual in nature.
- Third party employees can take offense to sexually, racially or other types of harassing conversations or situations between other employees or employers.
- Even if an employee gives in to an employer's sexual advances, he or she still may have grounds for a sexual harassment case.
- Members of a same sex can still be harassed by an offender and the person offended has a case even if there is no sexual motivation by the offending party.
