What Does Supervisor Sexual Harassment Look Like?
Generally, sexual harassment by supervisors and managers is about abusing a position of power and/or gaining some level of control over the employee. Many times, it can be subtle and build up over a period of time. Ask yourself if you have observed any of the following behaviors by your employer:
- Inappropriate leaning too close to talk to you at your desk
- Unwelcome touching
- Inappropriate language, dirty jokes
- Consistently asking what you do with your evening and weekend time
- Phoning or e-mailing you at home or off-hours
- Quid pro quo, expecting something in exchange for a promotion or pay raise (e.g., leave or sexual favors)
- Asking you out on dates
