Sexual harassment can be any form of unsolicited sexual actions that are so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment. It causes the harassed to feel oppressed and feel uncomfortable at work. A harasser can be the employee’s supervisor, a co-worker, or even a client or customer. Sexual harassment training is a must-have tool to fight, and ultimately end, sexual harassment in the workforce. Training is necessary so employees know what is considered appropriate and what crosses the line into sexual harassment. Knowledge is power, so all employees need to be informed as to what sexual harassment is and the power to report situations if they arise.
