sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is an unwelcome sexual advance or request for sexual favours to another person, and other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature in relation to another person. Examples might include unwelcome touching, staring or leering, or a suggestive comment or joke. To be sexual harassment, it has to be reasonable to expect that there is a possibility that the person being harassed would be offended, humiliated or intimidated by the behaviour.
