What is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual discrimination and harassment occur when a person is treated less favorably because of that person’s sex, which includes sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy or pregnancy-related matters. Additionally, sexual harassment can take many forms, especially if it’s unwanted and intentional from the other party.

What are Some Examples of Sexual Harassment?

  • Unwanted physical touching
  • Intentional invasion of personal space
  • Sexual offers or requests
  • Using sexual favors as leverage
  • Sexual jokes, innuendos or comments
  • Images or videos depicting sexual acts
  • Unsolicited messages or images of a sexual nature
  • Workplace discrimination based on sex or gender

 

In addition, workplace discrimination based on sex or gender is a red flag for sexual harassment.

In general, any harassment, discrimination or assault of a sexual nature could give you grounds to file a lawsuit against the perpetrator and/or other entities for financial recovery. Other parties, such as your employer, could be held liable for facilitating or failing to stop sexual harassment.
