Understanding Sexual Harassment and Your Rights in Santa Ana

The behaviors that collectively define sexual harassment don’t all look alike. For one, not all of them are physical – if someone is engaging in non-physical forms of sexual harassment, they can be held accountable for their actions as much as if they interacted with their victim’s body.

Identifying Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Common forms of sexual harassment at work can comprise of the following:

  • Unwanted touching of any kind and anywhere on someone else’s body
  • Unwanted comments about someone else’s body or appearance
  • Inappropriate remarks about someone’s real or perceived sexual activity or orientation
  • Quid pro quo, or asking for sexual favors in exchange for career advancement or perks
  • Making physical or verbal sexual advances and/or propositions
  • The display of sexually suggestive or explicit imagery, including photos and drawings
  • Making sexually suggestive gestures
  • Leering, watching, stalking, and blocking someone’s path
  • Sending links to pornographic websites or content
  • Mistreating someone who does not conform to the offender’s views on gender

Any of these behaviors and many more can become instances of sexual harassment regardless of the sexual orientation or gender identity of the involved parties.
