3 Surprising facts about workplace sexual harassment


Recent high profile cases of sexual harassment in the workplace have shined light on this important topic. Sexual harassment in the workplace is widespread, affecting workplaces of all sizes, in all industries, in all locations.

It is important to be aware of the many ways in which sexual harassment can occur. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), here are some lesser-known facts about sexual harassment in the workplace:

  • The victim is not always the person harassed: Sexual harassment affects more than just the victim. Sexual harassment creates a toxic work environment that can affect anyone who witnesses the conduct. When the employer fails to address the situation, victims may have legal options.
  • The conduct must be unwelcome: To be considered sexual harassment, the conduct must be unwanted by the victim. Sexual-natured conduct in the workplace that is welcomed may be inappropriate, but is not necessarily considered sexual harassment. However, if another person is bothered by the conduct, as noted above, it is advisable to speak to an employment law attorney.
  • The aggressor may not be a close colleague: Many times, the victim and aggressor work closely together. But this is not always the case. The harasser can be any colleague, supervisor - or even a non-employee.

Remember: Sexual harassment is illegal and victims have legal rights and options. You do not have to tolerate sexual harassment. If you are not getting support from your employer, you may want to consider talking to an employment law attorney.
