  • Inappropriate physical contact.
  • Invasion of personal space.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Advocating for or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

  1. Let the person know that what they did is not appropriate and ask them to stop.
  2. That person should immediately stop the behavior and correct the issue.
