Employees have a legal right to a workplace that is free from sexual harassment. Sexual harassment includes many types of behaviors such as unwanted sexual advances, sexual comments, exposure to sexually explicit conversations or jokes, or requests for sexual favors. Sexual harassment does not have to be “sexual” in nature, and can include generalized derogatory comments made about gender. Both women and men can be victims of sexual harassment.
Employees are legally protected from sexual harassment by co-workers, supervisors, managers, and even owners of the company where you work.
Victims of sexual harassment in the workplace often suffer emotional distress. It can make you feel helpless, frustrated, angry and depressed.
