For the most part talking, there are two kinds of sexual harassment, "quid pro quo" and hostile environment.

Quid pro quo (signifying "this for that") lewd behavior happens when it is expressed or inferred that a scholastic or business choice about an understudy or representative relies on whether the understudy or worker submits to lead of a sexual sort. Compensation lewd behavior additionally happens when it is expressed or suggested that an individual must submit to direct of a sexual sort so as to take part in a University program or action. In this way, for instance, if a worker is made to accept that an advancement is likely if the representative goes out on the town with the representative's manager, the representative is conceivably being exposed to "compensation" inappropriate behavior.

Hostile environment inappropriate behavior happens when unwelcome lead of a sexual sort makes a scary, compromising or oppressive working or learning condition or is so serious, constant or inescapable that it influences an individual's capacity to take part in or advantage from a University program or movement. While an individual taking part in pestering conduct regularly has some type of intensity or expert over the individual being bugged, that isn't generally the situation. The harasser can be a companion of the individual being pestered. Here and there the harasser is badgering an individual who has control over them. For instance, a supervisee can explicitly disturb a manager, or an understudy can explicitly hassle an employee.
