Sexual harassment

By February 27, 2018

It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment may include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual character.
Harassment doesn’t have to be of a sexual nature, nevertheless, and can include remarks about a individual’s sex. For instance, making offensive remarks about women in the work place is illegal and can be sexual harassment. It is important to note that the victim and the harasser may even be of the same sex.
The law does not prohibit simple teasing but if it the activity is so frequent that it creates a hostile environment then it has crossed over into sexual harassment.
