Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is a violation of federal and state laws, as well as Yale University policy.  The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines sexual harassment as “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature … when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.”  Yale’s policy on sexual harassment includes a ban on sexual relations of any sort between faculty and students.
