What is Workplace Harassment?

The U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) defines workplace sexual harassment as “unwelcome sexual advances or conduct of a sexual nature which unreasonably interferes with the performance of a person’s job or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.” Additionally, sexual harassment is a serious issue in the place of work. It is important to note that harassment situations can happen to both men and women. Evidently, there are many different forms of harassment in the workplace, which are all outlined in the training course.

Workplace Harassment in Wisconsin

Likewise, in Wisconsin, the state law protects workers from harassment in the workplace. Moreover, the factors protected by this law include race, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, age (40 and up), disability, sex, arrest or conviction record, marital status, sexual orientation, or membership in the military reserve.

Because of this, to be protected in Wisconsin, the incident must be more than a few isolated incidents or casual comments. There must be a pattern of reportable, abusive, or degrading behavior. However, the Wisconsin state law does not protect workers from general workplace harassment or bullying unconnected with some characteristic under the law.
