Sexual harassment Facts
It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person's sex. Harassment can include sexual harassment or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.
Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person's sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general.
Both victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex.
Although the law doesn't prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
What is the legal definition of sexual harassment in the workplace?
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.
A few questions you may want to ask yourself are:
What is my company's sexual harassment policy? What is sexual harassment law? What are some sexual harassment statistics? Do my employees truly understand the legal definition of sexual harassment? Am I taking seriously my obligation as an employer to protect my employees from hostile workplace events? How much money would my company be willing to pay to settle a sexual harassment law suit? Do I really know how to prevent sexual harassment from happening?
