Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment. By law, employers have an obligation to take reasonable steps to prevent and to take prompt remedial measures to address sexual harassment in the workplace.
