Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of 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 can occur in a variety of circumstances. For example, the victim of sexual harassment does not have to be the opposite sex of the harasser; the harasser can be the victim's supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or a non-employee, and the victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct.
Unlawful sexual harassment can occur without economic injury to or discharge of the victim.
