Sexual harassment: your rights

Sexual harassment is a type of discrimination

It can be unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favours or other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature.

It can be any of the following:

  • suggestive behaviour
  • staring or leering
  • sexual jokes
  • unwanted physical contact
  • sexting.

For more examples of sexual harassment, and information about what you can do if you feel you are being sexually harassed, go to the Anti-Discrimination Commission website.
