A Foot To Stand On...

The basic definition of sexual harassment comes from the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC states:

Unwelcomed sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonalbly interfers with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating or offensive work environment.

Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances, including but not limited to:

  • The victum as well as the harasser may be a women or man.
  • The harasser can be the victim's supervisor or a co-worker
  • the victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct

This organization as well as others provide through support with regard to sexual harassment. More and more organizations such as the EEOC are emerging in support of victims rights.
