Stopping Sexual Harassment Before It Starts (How-To Book)
Sexual harassment is one of the most complex workplace issues of our time. It is at once a legal issue, an emotional issue, a civil rights issue, and a very personal issue. It can be both easy to define and impossible to define. It can result from innocent actions or from criminal behavior. It can take place in a few seconds or require several years to develop. It can be a very public matter or an extremely private issue. But one thing is clear about sexual harassment. It must be taken seriously by all employers. Large and small organizations across the United States are being held accountable for incidents of sexual harassment.

Slapping any employee on the butt is inappropriate workplace behavior and should not happen with any employee! Unwanted touching, swatting, rubbing or any other physical action of this type spells trouble in the workplace. It’s best to keep physical contact to a minimum and always on a professional level. For example, a fist bump is generally appropriate when offering congratulations.
The Birthday Girl... (a Sexual Harassment Situation for Discussion)
Because appropriate touching varies so much among different people, the best advice is to keep close personal touch to a minimum and always on a professional level. For example, a congratulatory handshake or fist bump. Beyond that, unless you are absolutely sure that your contact is welcomed by the other person, it's best not to touch them at all.
Sexting... (a Sexual Harassment Situation for Discussion)
Joking can make the workplace fun, but it is also an area that can easily cross the line from being inappropriate to being illegal. People who work together sometimes engage in ‘harmless flirting’. As long as that behavior is welcome for those who are flirting, and those who are around to see it, it isn’t sexual harassment. When someone changes their mind, however, the welcomeness ends, and it’s time to stop.
