HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Where a person is subject to unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature to such an extent that it alters the conditions of the person's employment and creates an abusive working environment.
What exactly constitutes such an environment is often dependent on the specific circumstances and is a matter of continuing and sometimes conflicting - legislative and judicial actions, determinations and clarifications.
