Defining sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is illegal. It is defined by law as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal, visual or physical conduct of a sexual nature.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Is it unwanted?
  • Is it sexual?
  • Is it pervasive?
  • Does it permeate the environment?
  • How serious/severe is it?
