Sexual Harassment Legal Service

Our Sexual Harassment Legal Service provides information, advice, and representation to women who have encountered sexual harassment in the workplace, online and in further education.

What is sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment is broadly defined as unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. It is predominantly experienced by women and perpetrated by men, which is why we consider it to be a form of gender based violence. Some examples of sexual harassment include:

  • Making unwelcome verbal or physical advances
  • Unwelcome touching in a sexual way
  • Making offensive and/or sexually explicit comments
  • Making sexually embarrassing ‘jokes’
  • Sending inappropriate texts and emails to or about you

Our blog explains more about what sexual harassment is.
