Dr Eve: Sexual Harassment

Relationship expert Dr Eve joins us in the Expresso studio to talk about something many people go through but find it difficult to speak up about, sexual harassment. Any form of unwanted sexual advancement or conduct, whether physically or verbally.
This tends to happen to many people at the work place, with those in higher positions towards their juniors, or even offerings of workplace advancements in exchange for sexual favours. Then when the individual refuses such conduct, that goes on to affect their employment. This then leads to a hostile working environment.
There are many kinds of sexual behaviour that can make one feel uncomfortable, such as the following:

  • Unwelcome sexual jokes
  • Sexual requests
  • Staring at the body in an offensive way.
  • Rude gestures
  • inappropriate touching

Everyone in the workplace has the right to be treated equally which is why the Labour Relations Act is the main act that deals with workplace sexual harassment. Each employee has the the following rights in the workplace:

  • To have your complaints treated seriously and confidentially.
  • To report sexual harassment without fear
  • to be treated fairly, equally, and to not be discriminated against because of your gender, race, or your HIV status.
  • To work in workplace that is free from sexual harassment.
  • To be treated with dignity and respect at work.
