sexual harassment

Conduct involving unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature. There are two types of sexual harassment: quid pro quo sexual harassment, in which sexual contact is made a condition of employment, and hostile environment sexual harassment, in which such conduct creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. Lawsuits against businesses that allege sexual harassment have increased significantly during the past decade. Accordingly, around 1990 the insurance market began offering employment practices liability (EPL) policies, a specialized form of insurance covering claims of sexual harassment as well as other employment-related torts.
