A recent decision in the Fourth Circuit appellate court further defined the “evidentiary routes” available to employee plaintiffs bringing same-sex sexual harassment claims. This type of harassment in the workplace is prohibited by Title VII. In Roberts v. Glenn Industrial Group, Inc., the court more broadly translated the meaning of the term “sex” as used in Title VII. The ruling acknowledged that plaintiffs could prove he or she is the victim of same-sex harassment when the harassment was motivated by the fact that the plaintiff was perceived as not conforming to traditional gender stereotypes.
