The DO’s and DON’Ts of Sexual Harassment
- Admit that a problem exists
- Tell the offender specifically what you find offensive
- Tell the offender that his or her behavior is bothering you
- Say specifically what you want or don’t want to happen, such as “please call me by my name not Honey,” or “please don’t tell that kind of joke in front of me.”
- Blame yourself for someone else’s behavior, unless it truly is inoffensive
- Choose to ignore the behavior, unless it is truly inoffensive
- Try to handle any severe or recurring harassment problem by yourself -- get help.
