Workplace Harassment

Posted on Updated on

Workplace Harassment is another form of gender discrimination that occurs in the workplace. As the FindLaw article states : employers must also remedy any sexual harassment situations that are known, or of which the employer should be aware.  This includes both harassment of lower-tier employees by a manager or executive of lower position, and sexual harassment among co-workers. Harassment involves unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. It is illegal for an employer to make sexual conduct a condition or term of employment, to base employment decisions on such conduct, or to Prevent-Sexual-Harassment-Trainingpermit sexual conduct that unreasonably interferes with an employee’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
