Help for victims of the different forms of sexual harassment

There are different types of sexual harassment and it is important to be familiar with each and what to do if you are facing sexual harassment or abuse in the workplace. The reality is that sexual harassment occurs everyday and in the every industry and victims are protected against it.

Sexual harassment can impact the victim's ability to perform their job successfully but can also take a toll on the victim both emotionally and psychologically and, as a result, can impact the victim's professional and personal lives. The detrimental impact of sexual harassment can be devastating for victims which is why they should be familiar with the legal resources and remedies available to them.

Victims of sexual harassment can suffer damages as a result of the different types of sexual harassment they experience. All types of sexual harassment can be damaging including verbal harassment, physical harassment and visual harassment. Verbal harassment can include derogatory comments, romantic overtures, sexual comments or jokes and prying into the personal affairs of the victim. Physical harassment can include unwanted touching, rubbing against the victim, assault or interfering with their movements at work. Visual harassment can include inappropriate materials or gestures and leering.

It is impermissible to harass an individual based on their sex, gender or sexual orientation and it is important to be aware that sexual harassment does not have to be tolerated in the workplace. Victims of sexual harassment should understand their legal protections if they are victims of sexual harassment and how they can receive help with the harm they have suffered.
