What is sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment is unwelcome or inappropriate behavior of a sexual nature in the workplace. It often includes bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the promise or expectation of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. It is illegal and it can ruin a career.

It’s Not Just Wrong, It’s Illegal
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a violation of state and federal law! Behavior of a sexual nature that is unwelcome or inappropriate for the workplace should not be tolerated.
Each situation is unique. One type of inappropriate behavior is known as Quid Pro Quo harassment. It occurs when submission to unwelcome sexual advances is a term or condition, express or implied, of an individual’s employment, and thus is usually between a superior and a subordinate.
Another type of sexual harassment takes the form of a Hostile Work Environment created when unwelcome sexual advances or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating or offensive working environment. This type can occur between a superior and a subordinate, as well as between co-workers. An example would be unwelcome sexual jokes, slurs, and innuendoes.
