Sexual harassment is illegal and violates Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. No matter what form it takes, sexual harassment can not only be traumatic to the victim but also create significant, wider-spread problems in the workplace.

Harassment can manifest itself in a variety of ways. Examples include sexually explicit comments and jokes and verbal or physical advances that interfere with a person's work environment and make the person feel uncomfortable or unwelcome.
According to the EEOC, sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances:
The victim as well as the harasser may be a woman or a man. The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex.
The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or a non-employee.
The victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct.
Unlawful sexual harassment may occur without economic injury to or discharge of the victim.
The harasser's conduct must be unwelcome.
