Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is very serious and very wrong.  Employees often ask, what is sexual harassment,  what are examples of sexual harassment, and what can I do to stop it?

As an employee, you have the right to a work environment free from sexual harassment.  Sexual harassment is when a work environment is offensive because of an employee’s sex.  Sexual harassment takes many forms, and here are some examples:

  1. Sexual jokes;
  2. Sexual comments;
  3. Sexual pictures or images;
  4. Sexual cartoons;
  5. Sexual demands;
  6. Improper touching;
  7. Offensive comments about a person’s appearance; and
  8. Offensive comments about a person’s body.

These are some examples of sexual harassment.  But, these are not the only examples of sexual harassment.
