Many people have an idea of what sexual harassment is, but are often surprised to learn about how many different forms exist. In fact, many victims aren’t even aware that the inappropriate behavior they are experiencing is indeed sexual harassment. Here, a lawyer discusses the three different forms of sexual harassment in Boise you need to know about.

Verbal Harassment

Those who engage in verbal harassment often don’t realize how damaging and dangerous it is, or simply just don’t care. Verbal harassment is considered sexual jokes, sexual or gender-based humor, suggestive talk, and sexual insinuations or propositions.

Physical Harassment

Physical harassment is typically what people think about when the subject of sexual harassment comes up. Physical harassment is essentially unwanted touching. For example, undesired touching, rubbing or brushing up against the body can all be considered physical harassment. Also, pinching, grabbing, confining, assault or attempted assault, and rape or attempted rape are all considered to be physical harassment.

Nonverbal Harassment

Nonverbal harassment is a form of harassment that many do not know about. Undesired staring, obscene materials, and insulting noises are all considered to be nonverbal harassment and are unacceptable.
