Sexual Harassment: Inappropriate Physical Contact

Touching another person inappropriately: It represents one of the most egregious violations of our privacy and autonomy. It is unacceptable behavior in any workplace.

Unwelcome physical contact at work can be grounds for bringing a sexual harassment lawsuit. But what will that mean for you and your job? What should you do if you are afraid to report the behavior for fear of punishment or fear that your employer will not listen to your complaints?
