What Constitutes Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is not specific to one gender and can occur when any employee, man or woman, is subjected to harassment of a sexual nature in the workplace. These actions can include unwanted sexual attention in the form of, inappropriate advances, implied or requested favors, verbal abuse, or belittlement. It is important to note that employee involvement does not constitute employee consent. This situation can become complicated when an employee is made to believe that refusal of sexual attention will lead to termination.
Examples of sexual harassment can include:
- Sexual assault, battery, or rape
- Derogatory, demeaning or dismissive remarks
- Unwanted and deliberate touching or contact
- Disseminating sexual information about a person
- Implied or explicit requests for sexual contact or favors
