Know Your Rights. What is Sexual Harassment in the Workplace?

It’s crucial to understand all the different ways in which sexually harassing behavior takes place and how the law defines it.

Sexual Harassment can take a variety of forms, including: Sexually offensive or explicit comments, jokes and questions. Degrading or sexual physical conduct. Sexual propositions or advances. Obscene acts or gestures. Obscene or explicit photos or literature within view of employees. In real life, sexually harassing behavior ranges from repeated offensive or belittling jokes to a workplace full of offensive pornography to an outright sexual assault. It can happen to men and women, gay or straight — in other words, sexual harassment is an equal opportunity offense. Fortunately, there are state and federal laws that protect workers from sexual harassment on the job. Technology and social media encourage behaviors that lead to sexual harassment, portraying coworkers as fantasies. Sexual harassment is not a fantasy. It is harassment and nothing more. Employers are well advised to clean up their workspaces by educating employees and enforcing strict policies and procedures to stop this ever-growing behavior.
Sexual harassment plagues far too many workplace environments. Women regularly call us reporting sexual misconduct throughout Ohio. From Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Springfield, and beyond. The most common mistake people make when dealing with sexual harassment or retaliation is failing to document in writing their reports to human resources or superiors. It is imperative to report the misconduct to the appropriate individuals in writing, because at the end of the day, if the boss is the perpetrator, the human resources department is controlled by him… While this is not always the case, it is important to take every precaution in order to protect yourself from these situations, including documenting all occurrences in writing and reporting to human resources or your supervisor in writing and make sure you can prove you submitted the written report. Take the initiative to educate yourself on what sexual harassment really is, and what you can do to protect yourself.
