What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is a type of discrimination based on sex. Sexual harassment can consist of any unwanted and unsolicited sexual conduct, such as sexual advances, inappropriate gestures, touching, and requests for sexual favors in exchange for employment benefits, for example. Although sexual harassment usually includes some sort of sexual misconduct, it is not exclusive to sexual conduct. Offensive comments and jokes targeting a specific sex could also be forms of sexual harassment. For sexual harassment to be illegal, it must be frequent or severe enough to create a hostile work environment leading to demotion, termination, or other employment consequences.
