Definition of sexual harassment

    According to the Supreme Court, sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexually determined behaviour such as:
  • Physical contact, gestures, or stalking
  • A demand or request for sexual favors
  • Sexually oriented remarks
  • Showing pornography
  • Use of electronic media (phone, internet, intranet) for perpetrating any of the above
  • Any other unwelcome physical, verbal, or non-verbal conduct of a sexual nature

  • It is important to note here that what constitutes sexual harassment is defined by the victim, and not by the perpetrator.
