Sexual harassment in the workplace is demeaning, baseless and often poses long-term threats to an individual’s well-being. It can come in many forms, but regardless of the form, it is uncalled for and the offender must be held accountable for his or her actions.
Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual contact, advances or innuendo. It becomes pervasive when the victim asks the offender to stop and he or she does not. If you report this to your employer and he or she does not take action, this may give rise to what is considered a hostile environment which may lead to a sexual harassment case.
