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:
Fiona works as a consultant at a company that specializes in manufacturing medical equipment. One day her boss named Patty calls Fiona into her office. Patty tells Fiona that she has been doing a great job at work and asks Fiona how badly she wants to get promoted in a month. Fiona tells Patty that she’s been working hard and that a promotion would be a great opportunity. Patty tells Fiona that when she is considering candidates for a promotion, she has them prove to her that they have what it takes. Fiona asks what that means and Patty tells her that she’ll need to see Fiona fully nude in order to tell if she’s right for the job. Fiona tells Patty that she would be uncomfortable doing that. Patty tells her that if she doesn’t want the promotion then she doesn’t have to but that she won’t get it if she doesn’t. Fiona reluctantly agrees and takes off all her clothes. When she is fully nude Patty begins to inappropriately touch Fiona.
