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.
