Sexual harassment is a type of sex discrimination, and includes situations where there is an atmosphere of sexually based harassment and/or discrimination, including, for example, unwanted touching, unwanted comments and jokes, repeated unwanted requests for dates, and/or exchanging or display of sexually explicit photographs or materials. Sexual harassment also includes situations where an employee is asked to exchange sexual favors for favorable treatment, such as a promotion, or to avoid negative treatment, such as termination.
