What is sexual harassment in the workplace?
Sexual harassment is unwanted sexual advances that are, of course, sexual in nature. They do not need to be based on any kind of sexual desire or a specific form of lust. You could be targeted because of your marriage status, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, and more. In the workplace, it is wrong for you to be mistreated in any way, especially if the constant pervasive harassment has a negative impact on your productivity.
You could be sexually harassed in the following ways:
- You were a victim of inappropriate touching, such as when a coworker groped you, grabbed you for a kiss, massaged your neck, rubbed your back, touched your butt or other private areas, and more
- There were sexually explicit objects on display in someone’s office or you were given these objects as a gift, and were told or asked to use them
- You were a victim of sexual molestation, such as when someone fondled you or made you perform sexual acts or touch them in sexual ways
- A coworker sent you inappropriate pictures and videos, usually of themselves in sexually suggestive positions, or requested you to send such photos and videos back as well
- A coworker tried to have sexual relations with you by asking you out on dates, requesting sexual favors, soliciting you for affairs, and trying to get you to have a one night stand
- You were sexually assaulted, physically harmed, or otherwise hurt as a victim of rape
There are different types of sexual harassment that can happen to you. The first is known as quid pro quo harassment. This occurs when a manager or supervisor at Beachbody sexually harassed you, whether by proposing employment or promotions in exchange for sexual favors or by trying to punish you if you won’t submit to the requests. He may threaten you with poor performance reviews, demotion, job reassignment, docked salary and wages, and more.
Quid pro quo harassment can only occur if there is a clear power or status imbalance between the perpetrator and the victim. If the supervisor can affect the worker’s job status in some way, they can be held accountable for quid pro quo harassment.
The other type of harassment is known as hostile workplace environment harassment. It happens when a supervisor or coworker at Beachbody creates a hostile work environment and can be extremely disruptive. It may feature a lot of mistreatment and relentless advances. You should be aware, though, that you can file a Beachbody sexual harassment lawsuit even if you were not the direct recipient of the harassment. If you witnessed someone being sexually harassed, you could have been made very uncomfortable, or you could have had a triggered response to it second-hand. You can thus get help from a lawyer with experience in Beachbody sexual harassment cases.
No matter what kind of mistreatment you suffer, it is important that you speak with a Beachbody workplace sexual harassment attorney to file a lawsuit.
How can I file a Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Beachbody?
You can sue Beachbody for sexual harassment if you have enough evidence on your side. This evidence ay take some time to acquire, though, especially if the harassment happens away from other individuals. You should be careful about gathering your proof and submitting any complaints, though, because there is the chance that you could face retaliation and be terminated before you get the evidence you need. If someone from Beachbody harasses you and retaliates against you, it could greatly damage your claim, but you could potentially file a Beachbody wrongful termination and sexual harassment lawsuit. In the event a boss at Beachbody wrongfully and illegally fired you after you reported sexual harassment, you may actually have even more proof that there was wrongdoing.
We recommend that you do the following to get evidence:
Firstly, you should try to record all of the harassment in a journal of some kind. this journal should include the dates of the harassment, what happened, who was involved, where the incidents occurred, and more. If you have meticulous details and record keeping, you can easily refer to specific points, and it will be easier to catch defendants in lies if they deny that they were present.
You should also file a complaint with your boss or HR after the harassment has happened. You can keep these emails and other messages to show that you filed such a complaint, though, and copy all the responses you are given. You should be careful of approaching them too quickly, though, since they may simply wish to remove you instead of dealing with your claim.
In the event that you were assaulted, you should go to the doctor for treatment, take pictures of your injuries, get copies of your medical receipts and prescriptions, and contact the police to launch a criminal investigation.
If there were any coworkers who saw the harassment happen or who were also harassed and mistreated, you could add them to your claim or have them give you their statements and testimonies. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for coworkers to balk at giving statements – they may be fearful that they, too, will be wrongfully fired and retaliated against. This is why it may be beneficial to launch a class action lawsuit against Beachbody for sexual harassment
You will need physical evidence as well. This can include photos of the sexually explicit objects, audio recordings of harassing conversations, videos or security footage of the mistreatment, copies of texts and emails that were sent to you, and much more.
It will be necessary for you to file your complaint with either the Department of Fair Employment and Housing or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. They will investigate and decide if your case warrants a right to sue letter.
When you’ve gotten the evidence you need, contact a workplace sexual harassment lawyer who can help you proceed. We will ensure that your evidence is organized and that you are not misrepresented. If you have never had any legal experience or if you are unfamiliar with employment law, it is in your best interest to hire a lawyer who can help sue Beachbody for sexual harassment.
What is the value of a sexual harassment claim against Beachbody?
Beachbody sexual harassment cases can have an average value of more than $250,000 if you were assaulted or if you were a victim of long-term harassment. Beachbody sexual harassment lawsuits can be worth a fair amount of money if a skilled Beachbody sexual assault lawyer is on your side. You may also elect to join a Beachbody sexual harassment class action lawsuit, which will allow you to pool your evidence with other plaintiffs and receive a large settlement.
