  • Harassment

    Unwanted behaviour from an individual or group of people that undermines a person’s dignity or humiliates them. Harassment is a form of discrimination and targets someone based on their age, race, gender, ethnicity, disability and so on.

    Examples of harassment include verbal or physical threats, unwanted advancements of a sexual nature or pressuring someone into doing a sexual act, excluding a person from work events, forcing someone to quit their job and continued use of offensive language.

    It is up to the victim to decide if they feel that behaviour of this nature is harassment.
