What Is Considered "Sexual Harassment" in the Workplace?

Sexual harassment is a very serious form of employment discrimination that occurs far too often in the workplace. It can be demoralizing for an employee when a person makes unwanted sexual advances or requests for sexual favors in exchange for keeping his or her job, receiving a promotion or additional benefits. Sexual harassment can be the driving factor in a hostile work environment where there is a presence of objectionable pornography or verbal offenses such as sexual jokes, remarks or insults made by co-workers.
