Learning About The Signs Of Sexual Harassment
When you hear the words “sexual harassment,” it’s likely that you imagine a leering boss touching an employee inappropriately or a teacher making lewd comments about a student’s appearance. These unwanted sexual advances are considered unlawful under the Nevada Fair Employment Practices Act and Title IX, but so are other actions that may not be as obvious as these two examples.
People who harass co-workers or subordinates are bullies who engage in this act to reinforce their sense of power. These are deliberate acts. Harassers don’t accidentally humiliate or intimidate people with less authority. They create oppressive environments on purpose and continue to do so because they aren’t challenged by others to stop.
