No matter where you are when the incident happens, unwanted sexual advancements from a co-worker or supervisor can make your workplace hostile. You could be at your job, minding your own business or having a simple conversation, or maybe you're at an office party, or at a restaurant or bar for happy hour -- the location doesn't matter -- being sexually harassed is unacceptable.
No matter what form it takes, sexual harassment is unacceptable in the workplace. The harasser may act as though the harassment is an innocent joke, or as if the harassment is somehow a compliment. In other cases, harassment can take the form of inappropriate cartoons or drawings. If you have suffered any kind of sexual harassment -- whether it's quid pro quo or a hostile work environment -- then know that you are not alone and the law is on your side.
It isn't uncommon for offensive coworkers or bosses to try to characterize sexual harassment as innocent fun. However, sexual harassment in the workplace is a violation regardless of whether the offender is having fun or not.
