WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A MAN OR WOMAN IS SEXUALLY HARASSED AT WORK?
A co-worker or boss is sexually harassing them. The inappropriate comments. The unwanted contact. The gross emails. The calls. The texts.
THE VICTIM NEEDS THE JOB, THE MONEY, AND THEY CAN’T JUST LEAVE. WHAT DO THEY DO?
They fight it off. They try to avoid that person. They make the best of it. They deny that it’s happening. They keep the secret that they are victims of sexual assault.
SEXUAL HARASSMENT CAN COME IN MANY FORMS
We may think that workplace sexual harassment only looks like one type of behavior. Actually, workplace sexual harassment can occur in a number of ways, including:
- Your boss or a co-worker making your employment dependent on sexual favors
- Your boss or a co-worker subjecting you to physical acts of sexual assault
- Your boss or a co-worker requesting sexual favors
- Your boss or a co-worker verbally harassing you of a sexual nature
- Your boss or a co-worker making unwanted contact
- Your boss or a co-worker making unwelcome sexual advances
