What is Sexual Harassment?

With all the controversy in the news these days surrounding the sexual harassment claims against a presidential candidate, LRS decided to research  just what IS sexual harassment? 

The NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence defines it as “any unwelcome sexual advance or conduct on the job that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. Any conduct of a sexual nature that makes an employee uncomfortable has the potential to be sexual harassment.  Given this broad definition, it is not surprising that sexual harassment comes in many forms.”
