SEXUAL HARASSMENT                     

      It is unlawful to harass a person because of that person's sex.

​    Sexual Harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Sexual Harassment also includes inappropriate sexually-based behavior that creates a workplace atmosphere that is intimidating, hostile, or offensive.

​   The victim (as well as the harasser) can be a man or woman.

​   Harassment becomes illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment OR when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as firing or demotion).

​  The harasser can be a victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client, visitor, or customer.
