Myths About Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment is not just a woman's problem. Male employees can
be victims of sexual harassment as well. Employees may find themselves
harassed by a supervisor, manager, CEO, fellow employer, or a non-employee
of the opposite or same sex.
An employee can be a victim of sexual harassment whether he or she is directly
harassed or is exposed to conduct in the workplace that he or she finds
offensive. Even if the subject was not discharged, demoted, or otherwise
directly affected as a result, they can have a valid sexual harassment
claim if the conduct interfered with their work or led to a threatening
or uncomfortable work environment.
