Sexual Harassment Advice
If you were to read the Australian Human Rights Commission‘s article on sexual harassment. It states that any ‘unwanted or intimidating’ sexual advances made on an employee is legally classed as sexual harassment. Whether it be a fellow employee, manager, boss or customer committing these acts.
Sexual harassment can be interpreted as physical or verbal, and can also include offensive content in text messages and emails. Requests for sex or unwanted sexual favours, physical assault, indecent exposure and stalking are the most common forms of sexual harassment.
