Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment involves unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature in which submission to or rejection of such conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's work or school performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment

Types of Sexual Harassment

  • Quid pro quo- when the perpetrator makes anything (getting a raise, obtaining housing, getting an certain grade in a course) contingent upon the victim providing sexual favors
  • Hostile environment- when unwelcome and persistent sexual conduct creates an uncomfortable and hostile environment for the victim
