Post Defining Sexual Harassment In The Workplace

This is one term that has gone under such generalisation that most employees no longer know exactly what to term as sexual harassment in the workplace. Well, letís go back to the basics and see exactly what this term entails.

Definition of sexual harassment

By simple definition, sexual harassment in the workplace is any level of maltreatment based on your sex in order for you to keep your position, earn a promotion or benefits. This may also be defined in a less direct way, where it could define mistreatment based on gender where the employers or seniors deny access to promotions, opportunities and so on simply because you are female.

What the law can do about in case of sexual harassment

When you are sexually harassed in the workplace, there is a defence you can use. For starters, before even thinking of filing a suit, find yourself a great labour lawyer. They will be in a position to help you gather enough evidence to prove that sexual harassment did indeed occur. Note: it is possible to file a suit even when there has only been one incident of sexual harassment, though a pattern could be more efficient once established.
