There are various forms of sexual harassment, all illegal and grounds for a lawsuit. The first is physical contact, like inappropriate touching. The second is verbal sexual harassment, involving unwelcome comments in settings like the workplace or school where they’re inappropriate. The third type is environmental sexual harassment, creating a pervasive atmosphere of sexual harassment. This includes sexual jokes, cartoons, or physical contact between employees while the plaintiff is present. Such an environment can form the basis for a lawsuit.
