WORKERS and their bosses are being given new advice on what constitutes sexual harassment, including unwanted physical contact, remarks about a colleague’s appearance, or displaying pornographic images.

The conciliation service Acas said the guidance includes tips for workers on how to report incidents.

There are also examples of how sexual harassment can happen at work, such as written or verbal comments of a sexual nature, including remarks about a colleague’s appearance and questions about their sex life.

Acas chairman Brendan Barber said: “Many employers and employees in the UK may not be aware that all workers are legally protected from sexual harassment in the workplace.”
