What is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  In general, Title VII applies to employers with 15 or more employees, including state and local governments, employment agencies, labor organizations, as well as to the federal government.

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.

Sexual harassment may consist of unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:

● Submission to such conduct is made a term or condition of the individual’s employment;

● Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used for the basis of employment decisions affecting such individual; or

● Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with the individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
