What is Employment Discrimination?
Employment discrimination means being treated differently than similarly situated employees or job candidates -- or encountering a policy or practice that has an unfair impact on your employment compared to others.
What is Sexual Harassment?
Harassment of any kind is bothersome, demeaning, irritating, and annoying behavior. Sexual harassment is specifically harassment of a sexual nature.
Disrespectful or offensive sexual behavior by faculty, staff or students is inappropriate and, in some cases, may be an abuse of authority. The involved parties can be men or women; supervisors, subordinates or peers.
