Types Of Sexual Harassment
Harassment in the workplace may take many forms. California’s Fair Employment and Housing Commission defines harassment as:
- Verbal harassment such as epithets, derogatory comments or slurs (or repeated romantic overtures, sexual comments and jokes or prying into one’s personal affairs)
- Physical harassment such as unwanted touching, rubbing against someone, assault and physical interference with movement or work
- Visual harassment such as derogatory cartoons, drawings or posters, lewd gestures or leering
