The subject of Harassment includes numerous sub-topics including Sexual Harassment, Stalking, and Harassment based on race or religion.
Sexual harassment in the workplace is specifically prohibited by employment law. The courts recognize two kinds of sexual harassment. One is called, "quid pro quo," in which work benefits are contingent on sexual favors. The other, more common but less clear-cut, is the "hostile environment" in which the workplace atmosphere becomes so unpleasant, sexually, as to make a job unmanageable. This encompasses a broad category that often involves a combination of physical touching, lewd suggestions, comments about physical appearance and pornography or pin-ups that a reasonable person would find offensive.
