Relevant excerpt

Sexual harassment is a particular form of harassment and is strictly prohibited. This type of harassment can occur by conduct that creates a hostile work environment or when tangible benefits are directly tied to an individual’s submission to or rejection of unwelcome sexual conduct. Conduct creating a hostile, intimidating, or offensive environment includes subjecting an individual to unwelcome sexual comments, unwelcome physical contact, or offensive sexual materials as a regular part of the work or educational environment. Whether the conduct amounts to sexual harassment is determined from the perspective of an objectively reasonable person of the same gender in the same situation.
