Sexual harassment in the workplace can make things unbearable. Trying to avoid the harasser and trying to deal with the stress can make work a very stressful place. It is important that no employees think they simply have to deal with sexual harassment in the workplace. The federal government and the State of California both have very strict laws pertaining to sexual harassment.
Gone are the days in which male supervisors harassing female subordinates was the only recognized form of sexual harassment. Now, there are more subtle forms of sexual harassment that are recognized. Inappropriate comments, touching and other similar actions can be classified as sexual harassment.
