Do you believe that you were sexually harassed in UCLA by your employers? Unfortunately, the definition of sexual harassment could be vague for some; therefore, it could be difficult for victims to understand whether they are being sexually harassed by their employers. In general, sexual harassment includes all of the following: requests for sexual favors, unwelcome sexual advances, and even sexual comments, for example. Without a doubt, there are many forms of sexual harassment that could arise in the workplace.
When discussing sexual harassment, the following points are relevant:
- Victims and harassers can be any sex. Victims and harassers can be of the opposite sex; however, victims and harassers can also be of the same sex. Victims are not always women, and harassers are not always men.
- Harassers could be supervisors, coworkers, or any other party who has access to the workplace (including non-employees).
- Victims of sexual harassment range from the person being directly harassed to people who witness the harassment and are offended or distraught by it.
- Sexual harassment does not exclusively occur with economic harm/discharge.
- The sexual misconduct must be unwelcome by the victim.
