What is sexual harassment at work?

Sexual harassment can be many things in a workplace, but it generally includes any unwanted sexual advances, contact or behavior. It can be verbal or physical. It can be sexual in nature or even offensive remarks about a person’s gender.

Sexual harassment is classified as being either quid pro quo or hostile work environment. Quid pro quo involves a “this for that” exchange, such as offering something of value (a job, a promotion, etc.)for sexual contact. Hostile work environment involves unwelcome behavior related to sex that is so pervasive it creates an offensive work environment.
