You are protected by law against sexual harassment at work. This includes both men and women. It also includes people who are undergoing, have undergone or who are intending to undergo gender reassignment. This is where you are changing from one sex to another.  Sexual harassment could include: unwelcome comments of a sexual nature, unnecessary touching or unwanted physical contact, leering at someone's body, displaying offensive material such as posters and sending offensive e-mails.

Discrimination, Bullying & Harassment

Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect at work. Bullying and harassment of any kind are in no-one's interest and should not be tolerated in the workplace, but if you are being bullied or harassed it can be difficult to know what to do about it.  This leaflet gives employees basic information about bullying and harassment.  Summarises the responsibilities of employers.  Outlines some of the options open to you and points you to sources of further information and advice.
