Philadelphia Sexual Harassment Lawyers: Offensive Gestures

November 17th, 2016

Sexual harassment in the workplace can occur in a variety of forms including offensive language, physical contact, or obscene gesturing. If you feel degraded or threatened by non-verbal gestures from someone you work with, you may have grounds to file a sexual harassment lawsuit. Even if the gestures are not directed at you, if they are sexual in nature and make you uncomfortable, you could have a valid sexual harassment claim. Examples of obscene gestures that may constitute sexual harassment and a hostile work environment include:

  • Sexually suggestive hip movements
  • Hand gestures that mimic sex acts
  • Obscene mouth gestures
  • Gestures that mimic groping or touching, even if no physical contact occurs
  • Threatening or sexually suggestive use of the middle finger
  • Body language that makes you feel cornered, trapped, or threatened
  • Sexually suggestive facial expressions, leering, or ogling
