Sexual harassment can occur in many different forms. Sexual harassment can be physical, emotional, visual or verbal. Make sure you and your coworkers are aware of what constitutes sexual harassment in order to prevent it from happening in your workplace.
Take the following hypothetical example for instance:
A woman named Kat works as the Vice President of a marketing company. One day her boss, the company’s CEO, named Bob sends her a text message during work. In the text message Bob says that he’s been keeping an eye on Kat and that he thinks she’s getting “hotter every day.” Kat is uncomfortable with her boss’ text message and goes into Bob’s office. Kat tells him that the text message was “low-key creepy” and not very professional. Bob laughs and tells her to take a joke and calm down. Bob continues to send her text messages that get increasingly lewd, detailing sexual fantasies he has of Kat while they work. Kat begins to receive the inappropriate text messages every 10 minutes while at work and as a result her productivity declines.
