Sexual Harassment

Don't let someone get away with harassing you!

  We offer protection for people who have been sexually harassed in relation to...

  • Exchange of benefits, or a promotion from work.
  • References made to sexual materials, innuendos, pictures, and inappropriate jokes.
  • Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or any verbal conduct of a sexual nature.
  • Sexual harassment when it interferes with your work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

Anyone can be a victim of sexual harassment.
The harasser may be a man or a woman.  The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex - a man might harass another man or a woman might harass another woman.

Sexual harassment is not limited to direct supervisors.
Sexual harassment could come from a co-worker, a supervisor in another area, or potentially a person not employed in the victim’s workplace. Similarly, a victim of sexual harassment does not necessarily have to be the person directly being harassed; the victim could be an employee who is indirectly, but negatively, affected by the conduct.
