Behaviors That May Constitute Sexual Harassment
All situations are different and need to be evaluated to determine if sexual harassment has occurred. However, there are a number of behaviors that should not be tolerated and often constitute sexual harassment, such as:
- Inappropriate or lewd jokes
- Discussion of sexual activities
- Unwanted sexual advances, physical contact or touching
- Talking about one’s physical attributes or appearance
- Inappropriate gesturing
- Promises of job-related benefits, such as a promotion, in return for sexual contact
Workplace harassment is not always sexual in nature. Many individuals find themselves in situations where another person is mistreating and harassing them due to a variety of reasons, including their sexual orientation or appearance. It is important to know that any type of harassment should be immediately reported to your supervisor and legal action taken.
