Characteristics and Types of Sexual Harassment

There is a wide divergence of perceptions in our society as to what words or actions constitute sexual harassment. Due to the complexity of human behavior, it is difficult to pinpoint what exact behavior will be perceived as sexual harassment by an individual.

It becomes very difficult to draw a clear line between acceptable and unacceptable behavior in the workplace. For example, an arm around the shoulder may be perceived as a gesture of affection by an individual, the same gesture may be offensive to another person.  Hence if a person finds certain behavior personally offensive, he/she may consider it to be sexual harassment.  Behaviors may be subtle or obvious, verbal or nonverbal.
