Sex discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person’s sex. It is unlawful to harass a person because of that person’s sex. Both victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex.
It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.
