What is sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment is probably the most well known form of employment discrimination. However, many do not know what sexual harassment is. It is not a single instance of name calling, a request for a date, or a leering look. Rather, in order to prove sexual harassment, a plaintiff must show that he or she has been subjected to unwelcome conduct that creates a hostile environment based on his or her sex that is sufficiently severe and pervasive to alter the terms and conditions of his or her employment.
