Workplace harassment is an aspect of workplace aggression and is the harassment of employees while at work

Sexual harassment in the workplaceEdit

In the UK Research has shown that more than 50% of women and nearly 10% of men have experienced some form of sexual harassment at work [citation needed]. But only 5% of those suffering sexual harassment ever make a formal complaint, and of those who do, only 10% ever get as far as an Employment Tribunal hearing


Many organisations have a code of practice against bullying and harassment which asks us to behave towards each other in a manner expected in a professional working relationship.

A large part of this is that everyone has a responsibility to respect the feelings and sensibilities of others in the workplace, and to behave in a way which does not cause offence.
