Part V: Cope with Challenges > Beware of Sexual Harassment

Chapter 48. Beware of Sexual Harassment

It is essential to keep your relationships at work on a professional level. Being friendly and approachable is part of having a positive attitude, but be cautious about forming romantic relationships at work. Sometimes, it is difficult to keep romance and work separate, for instance, if you work directly with or report to your partner. You need to understand that being involved romantically with someone at work is taking a risk. Romances do break up and you want to be careful to always be ethical and working within the law.

Federal law prohibits sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other conduct of a sexual nature. If someone feels that her work performance is affected by repeated unwelcome gestures, actions, or language, harassment has taken place. Some actions are considered harassment even if there is only one occurrence.
