The law protects all employees from sexual harassment, whether the harassment has been carried out by your employer themselves, a workmate or a third parties within the workplace.
Sexual harassment at work may take a number of forms:
- Sexually offensive or pornographic emails
- Sexually suggestive remarks or gestures
- Asking for sexual favours
- Displaying sexually offensive materials such as posters
- Unwelcome comments of a sexual nature
- Asking about a persons sexual habits
- Unnecessary physical contact
Sexual harassment can be based on a single event, or on a pattern of behaviour over a period of time.
