Harassment, Sexual and Otherwise
People come to work. The law prohibits activities that make working more difficult for illegitimate reasons, such as race, religion, or sex. Conduct that is offensive to someone because of their race, religion, or sex has no place at work. It is not job-related, and people do not have to put up with it. Harassment, including sexual Harassment, is a violation of civil rights laws. Harassment reduces productivity and creates liabilities for employers. It is also hurtful to its victims and against the law. Therefore, its reduction is part of a security Guards duty to protect people and property.
Sexual Harassment is legally defined as any unwelcome sexual conduct or contact. Note that sexual Harassment (like all Harassment) is measured primarily by the effect of behavior on the victim. The actor's intent is not essential, and it does not matter much that the person thought the conduct was harmless. Sexually harassing conduct can be open, such as coercing sex with a promise of promotion or grabbing at employees. It can also be more subtle, such as jokes and verbal conduct, or too persistently trying to date someone who has said no.
Even routine dating between co-workers is often discouraged. It can quickly create conflicts of interest, and there have been many cases in which this has resulted in compromises of security.
