If I’m being sexually harassed, should I quit my job?

Hell no! You are not committing the wrong in this situation, and you have nothing to be ashamed of, nor any reason to quit your job. Instead, take up the complaint the your company’s point person or a direct supervisor. However, if you do quit, that doesn’t mean you should not bring a lawsuit against your employer; in many cases, a court will determine that the harassment was so pervasive that you were forced to quit your job, known as constructive discharge. In this case, you will be entitled to the same benefits that other discharged workers collect, such as unemployment compensation and COBRA.
