Harassment in The Workplace is Unlawful
Certain types of harassment in the workplace are considered unlawful according to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972. When an employee makes inappropriate verbal remarks or physical conduct, it is considered to be harassment when:
- The behavior is severe enough that it creates a hostile work environment
- The harassing behavior of a supervisor causes a change in the employee’s employment status or benefits. Examples of this are demotion, termination, looked over for a promotion etc.
