Was it sexual harassment? Workplace Scenario Number 1: Elysia & Matt

Workplace sexual harassment scenario

Elysia and Matt work together in a supermarket. They’ve worked together for a while now, and even though Matt liked the attention at first, he’s started to get uncomfortable with how Elysia behaves towards him.

Is this sexual harassment?…

Was it sexual harassment? Workplace scenario number 1

Verdict: this is sexual harassment.

Even though he liked the attention when they first met, Matt is clearly uncomfortable and Elysia’s behaviour is now UNWANTED, so this IS sexual harassment. Even though it isn’t professional, this behaviour would NOT be sexual harassment if Matt welcomed it.
