What Are Examples of Workplace Sexual Bribery?

February 27th, 2023
Examples of Workplace Sexual Bribery

Sexual bribery is a form of sexual harassment that occurs in the workplace. It is defined as an employer or superior offering an employee or subordinate elevation in work status or pay in exchange for sexual favors. This type of harassment creates a hostile work environment, leaving employees feeling powerless and vulnerable. There are ways to fight back and recover damages for the harm caused by sexual bribery.

Sexual bribery can take different forms. Here are a few common examples of sexual bribery in the workplace:

  • A manager tells an employee they will receive a promotion if they agree to have dinner with the manager outside of work hours.
  • An employer offers an employee additional compensation if they agree to do sexual favors.
  • A supervisor promises better working conditions or job security if an employee agrees to engage in intimate activities with them.

These are just some examples of how sexual bribery can occur in the workplace. It is important to note that it does not have to be explicit. Sometimes, it is done subtly, making it difficult for employees to recognize what is happening until it is too late.

What Can Employees Do if They Have Been Sexually Harassed?

If you have been sexually harassed by your employer or superior, you do not have to accept their advances, even if there are rewards being offered. Here are some steps you can take if you feel like you are being sexually bribed or harassed:

  • Speak up: Tell your employer that their behavior is inappropriate and that you will not tolerate it any longer. Explain why it makes you uncomfortable, and ask them to stop immediately.
  • Document everything: Keep records of all emails, texts, conversations, and anything else related to the incident. This evidence could be useful later on if the situation escalates into legal action against your employer or superior.
  • Seek help from HR: This should be done as soon as possible so they can begin investigating the incident and taking appropriate actions against those responsible. Be sure to provide them with any evidence you may have collected.
  • Consider legal action: If more serious repercussions are necessary because HR failed to act appropriately, then consider speaking with a lawyer to discuss your options.

Sexual bribery is a serious issue that no one should ever have to experience while at work. If you find yourself in this situation, know that there are ways out and legal recourse might be available.
