Understanding Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment is still prevalent in the workplace, despite all of the work done over the last few years in light of the #MeToo Movement. According to a study by NPR, approximately 40 percent of all women have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace during their lifetime.
However, sexual harassment can happen to anybody, including men and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Transgender individuals tend to suffer from incredibly high rates of harassment in the workplace.
Sexual harassment takes many forms in workplaces throughout Arizona. This can include physical sexual harassment or assault, verbal sexual harassment, as well as non-verbal actions that constitute harassment. Often, sexual harassment behavior is subtle, and it may only be conducted by one perpetrator in the workplace. However, there are also times when sexual harassment is blatantly obvious, and the harassment permeates the entire work culture.
Common Types of Sexual Harassment
Some of the most common types of sexual harassment behaviors that we help clients with include the following:
- Any type of unwanted touching of the body, hair, clothing, etc.
- Non-consensual kissing, hugging, or massages
- Purposely brushing up against other individuals
- Purposely standing too close to other individuals
- Continual comments about a person’s looks
- Workplace discussion of sexual activities
- Referring to other employees by pet names such as “sweetheart,” “baby,” and “darling”
