What is sexual harassment?

Printer-friendly version

Sexual harassment is any unwelcome sexual advance or conduct on the job that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. Any conduct of a sexual nature that makes an employee uncomfortable has the potential to be sexual harassment. Given this broad definition, it is not surprising that sexual harassment comes in many forms.

The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence has a lot of information to help people understand and identify sexual harassment, learn about the impact of these forms of violence on special populations, and seek assistance for victims.
