Every school kid learns about “good touch” and “bad touch.” Yet in a workplace setting, victims of harassment and discrimination often endure unwanted touching for many reasons. It’s not that big a deal. He’s just that way. Am I reading something sinister into something innocent? Will I get this person in trouble? And so the pattern continues or escalates.

- Grouping or grabbing
- Caressing or “massages”
- Brushing against your body
- Kisses (on the lips, cheek or anywhere)
- Sitting or standing uncomfortably close to you
