Sexual harassment in the Workplace

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

Sexual harassment includes offensive jokes, pressure for sexual favors, unwelcome touching, and any type of physical harassment. Harassment is illegal in the workplace when it gets to the point of making work environments hostile or causing discomfort in individuals.

The harasser is not limited to employees, it can be customers or supervisors. Oftentimes, supervisors abuse their power to pressure those who work for them into engaging in activities they are not willing to do. However, many workplaces have policies set in place to discourage this behavior and discourage harassment. Find out these policies by asking employees, checking the companies' website, and reading over the contract (if you signed one).

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 "prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin". It protects employees from sexual harassment at work. If contacting your employee or company supervisors does not provide any results, try the following suggestions. File a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or contact an attorney.
