Sexual harassment occurs whenever there is any type of unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and can be verbal or physical in nature. Sexual harassment does not always have to be sexually suggestive in nature; general offensive comments about a person’s sex are also considered sexual harassment.
For a company or employer to be held responsible, there must be some type of reporting. The best type of report is made in writing to Human Resources and explicitly describes that sexual harassment has occurred, what type of sexual harassment, and names the harasser. It then becomes the providence of the employer to do a proper investigation into the matter.
