What does workplace sexual harassment look like?


A victim of sexual harassment may not see him or herself as a victim. Many questions may run through the mind of a victim:

  • Is what I am experiencing really sexual harassment?
  • If this is sexual harassment - what am I supposed to do now?

First, let's define sexual harassment. The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as "unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature".

Some examples of workplace sexual harassment may include:

  • Repeatedly asking out a colleague
  • Telling inappropriate or degrading jokes
  • Touching a colleague in an inappropriate way (back rubs, hugs, brushing up against the body, standing uncomfortably close, etc.)
  • Offering a promotion or pay raise in exchange for sexual favors
  • Calling someone demeaning names
  • Staring at someone's body
  • Discussing sexual activities at work
  • Displaying pornographic images on a computer at work

Sexual harassment is illegal - and you do not have to tolerate it. Your employer should take actions to stop the behavior. If this does not happen, it is important to be aware of your legal rights and options.

If you think you may be experiencing sexual harassment, it is advisable to discuss the situation with an employment law attorney.
