How often does workplace sexual harassment happen?

If the #MeToo movement has taught us anything, it is that this is still a major problem in the American workforce. While the celebrities have told their stories, we know that workers at all levels of income are victims of workplace sexual harassment.

  • Studies show that 38% of women have reported experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace.
  • The EEOC says that surveys show only 74% of people think their employers take sexual harassment seriously.

Until 100% of employers take this issue seriously, we are not going to make much progress. Most cases of sexual harassment never get reported because victims fear retaliation from their coworkers and supervisors. Many victims are made to believe that this is just part of the work culture.

  • Sexual harassment is degrading. It is offensive and humiliating to those who experience it. Victims often suffer from severe emotional and psychological distress that can affect their job performance and personal life.

What does sexual harassment in the workplace look like?

Workplace sexual harassment takes many forms. Below, we go over some of the most common ways we see this occur.

  • Physical Harassment – is perhaps the most well-known and includes:
    • Any unwanted touching (hair, clothing, body)
    • Kissing or unwanted hugging as well as patting or stroking behaviors
    • Unwanted massaging of the neck or shoulders
    • Brushing against someone or standing too closely to someone
  • Verbal Harassment – the comments that fly around a workplace are often harassment and can include comments about how a person looks, discussion of sexual activities, or calling a person names such as “baby,” “sweetheart,” “sexy,” etc.
  • Non-Verbal Harassment – this can include intimidation tactics like standing in a doorway, staring at a person, winking at them, or even making sexual gestures.
  • Threats or Requests – this includes requests for sexual favors in a trade for benefits like promotions of raises as well as threats of termination or demotion for not providing sexual favors.
