What Is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment exists in many forms. A manager or other high-ranking employee may promise a raise or career advancement in exchange for sexual favors. Employees may suffer unwanted sexual attention from co-workers or managers, making it difficult for them to perform their duties in the workplace.
If an employee has notified an employer that such behavior is occurring, the employer must take action to prevent the conduct from continuing. Employers cannot punish or terminate employees for filing such complaints.
