Sexual harassment

Sexual harassment can have a profoundly damaging affect on women’s working lives. The Equality Act 2010 defines sexual harassment as ‘when someone makes you feel humiliated, offended or degraded because they treat you in a sexual way… This covers verbal and physical treatment, like sexual comments or jokes, touching, or assault. It also covers sending emails of a sexual nature, or putting up pornographic pictures.’

It is also considered discrimination when someone treats you unfairly because you refuse to put up with sexual harassment. Learn about your rights and resources below.
