The Supreme Court defines sexual harassment as engaging in a course of bothersome comments or conduct that is known to be unwelcome. By this definition, more than one event must occur for a violation of the Code. However, in certain circumstances, a single incident could be substantial enough to be considered sexual harassment. Most accusations of sexual harassment stem from the workplace, but you can be charged with sexual harassment in any situation where unwelcome comments or conduct are perceived to be of a sexual nature. These accusations can result in you being fired from your job, being required to register as a sex offender, receiving jail time and being ostracized by your community.
