What Is Considered Sexual Harassment?
Many employees do not know where the line is drawn or do not feel comfortable reporting sexual harassment or confronting the abuser. Sexual harassment can be perpetrated by co-workers, a supervisor or manager, or even a customer or client. It can occur in the open or in private. It can be male to female, female to male or same-sex harassment.
Sexual harassment can include:
- Sexual contact: assault, touching, hugging, kissing
- Unwelcome advances, unwanted gifts, stalking behavior
- Quid pro quo threats (job consequences unless you submit)
- Sexual texts, emails or phone calls, or sexual pictures, jokes and innuendo
- Suggestive or demeaning comments about your body or clothing
- Other behavior that makes you fearful or uncomfortable
