Tuesday Bare Essentials - Sexual Harassment Test Your Knowledge

Is this sexual harassment?

Today my coworker texted me again to ask me out. She’s done this every day for the last five days. The first time she texted me and I didn’t respond. The second time I texted back that I was busy. I told my supervisor and he said I should tell her to stop, but did nothing else.

 Is this sexual harassment? Yes, the event took place in the workplace. Repeatedly asking someone out can be sexual harassment.  Employers could be held personally responsible for not taking action.
