Sexual harassment is a form of unlawful sex discrimination. Sexual harassment means unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct or communication of a sexual nature where submission to or rejection of such conduct is made a term or condition of employment. Other forms of sexual harassment are where such conduct has the effect of substantially interfering with an individual's employment (MI Comp. Laws Sec. 37.2103 et seq.).
Same-sex harassment. The Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled that Michigan's civil rights law also protects employees from same-sex harassment (Robinson v. Ford Motor Co., 277 Mich. App. 146 (Mich. Ct. Appeals 2007)).
Public employers. All state agencies are required to disseminate information regarding the nature of sexual harassment and how it may be prevented in the workplace.
