Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment is defined as: 

A. Knowing, reckless, or intentional conduct with a nexus to military service that:

1. Involves unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and deliberate or repeated offensive comments or gestures of a sexual nature when:

a. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of a person's job, pay, or career; 
b. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by a person is used as a basis for career or employment decisions affecting that person;
c. such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment; or, 

2. Is so severe or pervasive that a reasonable person would perceive, and the victim does perceive, the work environment as hostile or offensive. 

B. Any knowing, reckless, or intentional use or condonation, by any person in a supervisory or command position, of any form of sexual behavior to control, influence, or affect the career, pay, or job of a service member or DoD employee.

C. any conduct whereby a service member or DoD employee knowingly, recklessly, or intentionally and without proper authority but with a nexus to military service makes deliberate or repeated unwelcome verbal comments or gestures of a sexual nature.
(There is no requirement for concrete psychological harm to the complainant for behavior to constitute sexual harassment.)
