What Qualifies as "Unwelcome" Conduct?

Sexual Harassment Lawyers Serving the Southern California Region

Sexual harassment in the workplace consists of unwelcome behavior. The unwelcome nature of the conduct is the key component in this matter. If you are in agreement with another's joking, advances, or physical touching, then that does not constitute sexual harassment nor does consensual dating or other sexual conduct between you and someone else at work.

Unwelcome conduct consists of any behavior that is sexual in nature or gender-based that you do not initiate and you find personally offensive. Crude come-ons, demeaning remarks, explicit sexual stories and jokes told verbally or sent through office emails or bulletin boards, sexist comments, attempts at groping or fondling, and implications or threats that you must engage in sexual activity to keep your job are all examples of unwelcome conduct. How you receive and respond to the behavior will determine whether you find it unwelcome or not. If you do find such conduct unwelcome, you should not hesitate to make your reaction known, clearly and promptly.
