Digital Trends Media Group generally defines bullying as conduct that is threatening, humiliating, embarrassing or seriously intimidating and which creates a hostile environment by substantially interfering with an individual’s opportunities, performance, or physical or psychological well-being.
Bullying also means any intentional written, verbal or physical acts, including electronic communications that physically harm an individual, damage an individual’s property, or intimidate or coerce an individual.
Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that is persistent or offensive and interferes with an employee’s job performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.
Sexual harassment can be physical and psychological in nature. An aggregation of incidents can constitute sexual harassment even if one of the incidents considered on its own would not be harassing.
Other workplace harassment is verbal or physical conduct that insults or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual because of the individual’s class (including age, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and any other status protected by law).
