Sexual Harassment Is a Form of Sex DiscriminationKONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Employers have a duty to prevent and stop sexual harassment in the workplace. By enacting and enforcing clear policies prohibiting harassment and discrimination, employers should be able to virtually eliminate this type of unacceptable behavior.

Unfortunately, many employers don’t make it a priority to address sexual harassment. Too many employees still have to endure sexually explicit remarks, unwanted advances, and even physical assaults by bosses, supervisors, coworkers and even customers.

Employees who are sexually harassed are often required to provide some type of sexual favor in return for continued employment, a promotion or other perks. It can be direct, but it can also be indirect, with the employer allowing one employee or a group of employees to harass other workers. Ignoring sexual innuendo, explicit posters, touching, and other overt acts can contribute to an illegal hostile work environment.
