What is Sexual Harassment in the Workplace?

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of discrimination based on sex. It encompasses unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that creates a hostile or offensive work environment. It is prohibited by federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New York Human Rights Law.
