Course Summary:

What is sexual harassment?

The EEOC and Illinois General Assembly defines sexual harassment in its guidelines as:
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:

  • Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment, or
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as a basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or
  • Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

Unwelcome Behavior is the critical word. Unwelcome does not mean “involuntary.” A victim may consent or agree to certain conduct and actively participate in it even though it is offensive and objectionable. Therefore, sexual conduct is unwelcome whenever the person subjected to it considers it unwelcome. Whether the person in fact welcomed a request for a date, sex-oriented comment, or joke depends on all the circumstances.

To understand how and why sexual harassment occurs, it is important to define what it is. Unfortunately, there is no single, agreed-upon definition across all contexts.

In this course, we identify themes from academic and legal definitions to provide a comprehensive definition of sexual harassment.

Learning Objective:

By the end of this course the student will have a much better understanding of what is and what is not sexual harassment in work or outside of work.
