Sexual behavior, no matter how subtle, should never be a component of people's behavior in the workplace. Staring or ogling may seem to some as a trivial action that is not harming anyone. However, body language such as this can be profoundly pervasive, and can seriously impact the way that an employee feels at work.

Inappropriate material at work could constitute harassment

Am I a victim of sexual assault in the workplace?
