Sexual harassment is defined as "unwelcome sexual physical or verbal conduct in the workplace."

Federal Law:

Federal law forbids sexual harassment under Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964. Title VII covers employers who employ, or have employed, 15 or more employees for each working day in 20 or more calendar weeks in the current or preceding calendar year.

State Law:

Sexual harassment is illegal under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. Sexual harassment protections extend to applicants, employees, unpaid interns, professional relationships and independent contractors.

Other than that, criminal cases fall under separate classifications such as sexual assault, stalking, battery, domestic violence, etc. depending on the specific facts/ situation.

I hope that helps!

I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

I always thought if a clear sexual advancement is made and refused, any follow up advancement is illegal. Is this true?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Your response didn't really address the question.

Are you referring to an incident in the workplace or outside of the workplace?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Original question was outside the workplace. A person hits on a person, the advance is refused. Same person hits again, and again, and again. Whne is the legal line crossed?
