Here is information on what constitutes harassment at work and how to handle it if you are being harassed.
Harassment in the workplace and in hiring isn't limited to sexual harassment. Other actions and comments regarding religion, race, age, gender, or skin color, for example, may also be considered harassment, if an employee isn't hired because of one of these facts, of if the harassment interferes with an employee's success or creates a hostile work environment.
If you feel like you've been a victim of workplace harassment, it is important to file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Before you file the claim, educate yourself to insure that the incident actually counts as harassment.
