Is it considered sexual harassment if the actions of my co-workers make me uncomfortable?

Sexual harassment is often understood as a form of direct, personal interaction, but the reality is that even sexual conversation or other representations of sexual activity can be considered a form of sexual harassment under the law. Indeed, this type of sexual harassment, typically known as creating a hostile work environment harassment, is often the basis for sexual harassment claims. Issues such as lewd drawings, inappropriate jokes, or discussion of sexual matters in the work environment can be considered sexual harassment in some situations.
