Sexual harassment takes on many forms

When most people think about sexual harassment in the workplace, inappropriate touching is the first thing that comes to mind. And while that's one of the most common forms of sexual harassment, there are many others that you need to be aware of.

Here are some of the many forms sexual harassment can take on:

  • Inappropriate touching: As noted above, this is common. It can include any type of touching, such as a co-worker who puts their hands on your shoulders and makes you uncomfortable.
  • Inappropriate language: It may not be as intrusive as touching, but that doesn't make it right. For example, if a supervisor makes crude remarks about your body or appearance, it can be a form of sexual harassment.
  • Sexual harassment via email or text: Not all sexual harassment takes part in a face to face environment, such as your office. This can also occur via email or text -- and is much more likely today with the advancement of technology. An example would be a boss who sends you sexually charged text messages.
  • Continually asking you on a date: It's not sexual harassment if a co-worker asks you for a date. However, if you turn them down and they continually come back for more, it can soon lead to this illegal behavior.

If you feel that you've been the victim of sexual harassment at work, report the incident to your HR department and follow up with them to learn more about what they're doing to help your cause.

It's critical that you protect your well-being, as well as your legal rights.
