You Don’t Have To Tolerate Workplace Harassment
Everyone deserves to work in an environment where they feel safe and supported. Harassment from co-workers or superiors is unacceptable and should not be tolerated.

Harassment Takes Many Forms
State and federal laws prohibit harassment in the workplace. There are various types of harassment, including:
- Quid pro quo sexual harassment (attempting to solicit sexual favors in exchange for job benefits)
- Hostile work environment sexual harassment (unwanted touching, unwelcome comments, degrading jokes, repeated requests for dates, etc.)
- Harassment based on a protected characteristic (race, gender, disability status, age, religion, etc.)
If someone is harassing you in the workplace, you may experience discomfort and stress, and your performance may be affected. If a co-worker is the harasser, take this up with your manager or human resources department first. However, if the harassment is coming from a manager, you may have a case against your employer.
