Abstract/Citation: S. 3 defines sexual harassment as a request for a sexual favor, accepted or not, from an employer, employee, manager, teacher, instructor, professor, coach, trainer or other persons who have "authority, influence or moral ascendancy" over another. Sexual harassment is committed when such a favor is demanded in return for employment or promotion, or refusal to grant such a favor results in the impairment of an employee's rights, privileges, or employment opportunities. S. 4 requires employers to establish sexual harassment rules and procedures for the investigation of sexual harassment cases. These rules shall not bar prosecution in proper courts.
