The “#MeToo” movement has brought sexual harassment to the forefront of today’s society. Every day on TV, the radio, internet, or newspaper, someone new is coming forward with Sexual Harassment claims. It is without doubt that many if not most of these claims are true based upon the definition of Sexual Harassment as outlined in Section 703 of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It is defined as:
(a) Harassment on the basis of sex is a violation of section 703 of title VII. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment, (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
