Video Transcript

Sexual Harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964. There are two common scenarios for sexual harassment regarding adults. The first scenario is employee to employee which occurs between in-school employee or non school third parties such as guest speakers or any other campus visitors. The second, while is most common but equally troubling is student to employee. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that negatively affect an individual's work performance or create an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment constitute sexual harassment under Title VII. This law protects all employees from sexual harassment. Under Title IX of the education amendments of 1972. Sexual harassment in schools is also illegal. The Department of Education office for Civil Rights enforces Title IX and protects all students, male or female, from sexual harassment by any school employee, another student, or a non-employee third party and can withhold funding from educational institution that violates title IX.
