What Is Considered Sexual Harassment?

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), sexual harassment is defined as “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature” that unreasonably interferes with a person’s ability to perform their job.

Quid pro quo agreements in which a party in a position of authority forces a subordinate to tolerate sexual harassment as a condition of keeping their job or other benefits are also considered sexual harassment.

What Are the Most Common Examples of Workplace Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment can happen to employees of all genders and sexes. The perpetrator also does not have to be of the opposite sex for the incident to amount to harassment.

The following are common forms of sexual harassment that workers frequently endure in the workplace:

  • Inappropriate comments of a sexual nature
  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Offensive and sexual banter
  • Requesting sexual favors
  • Staring or leering
  • Intentional invasion of personal space
  • Unsolicited messages or images of a sexual nature
  • Displaying images or videos depicting sexual acts
  • Discrimination and retaliation based on sex or gender

While this is a great list of things to keep an eye out for in your workplace, not all forms of harassment are visible or noticeable. This is another reason to create a safe environment for all people to come forward with their stories at work.

What Can Be Done At Work?

The best way to combat workplace harassment is to lead by example. You will be showing that harassment will not be tolerated at all, at any level, by any company employee. This guideline sets a crystal clear policy and shows that you are committed to protecting everyone in your company. Laying this groundwork can also help people feel less fearful about coming forward with their stories. They know there is zero-tolerance for harassment, so they won’t fear retaliation from the company or being dismissed.

It is crucial that if you find yourself being sexually harassed at work, to come forward and report it to either HR or a supervisor you trust. It can be scary. It can feel like you are alone. But, the acts of harassment cannot go on. You deserve to go to work without fear; you deserve to go to work and not have your work interrupted. Reporting your case to HR can help create a distinct timeline and record; should your company fail to take care of you, you have the proof to file a lawsuit against them.
