Are you familiar with these sexual harassment examples?

Despite the fact that there are laws in place to protect employees against sexual harassment, there are times when one person crosses the line. As the result, the victim is put in a difficult position. While some people are able to endure the harassment, nobody should have to do this. There is no place for this type of behavior in the workplace.

On the plus side, sexual harassment at work is no longer something that most people tolerate. Furthermore, most people understand they should never harass another party.

Generally speaking, there are two types of sexual harassment. The first is known as quid pro quo. Common examples include:

-- Sexual favors in exchange for a person keeping his or her job

-- Sexual favors in exchange for a promotion, raise, or some other type of workplace benefit

There are also examples associated with an atmosphere of sexual harassment. These include:

-- Unwanted touching

-- Unwanted comments or jokes

-- Repeated requests for dates or sexual favors

-- Displaying or transmitting sexual images or texts

If you are the victim of any type of sexual harassment, the first thing you should do is tell the other person to stop. This may be enough to put the problem in the past.

From there, report the problem to your supervisor or HR department. You want to make sure that your complaint is on record in case the behavior persists.
