Harassment covers a wide range of offensive behavior. It is commonly understood as behavior intended to disturb or upset. In the legal sense, it is behavior which is found threatening or disturbing.

Harassing behavior include:
-Spreading malicious rumours, or insulting someone by word or behaviour (particularly on the grounds of age, race, sex, disability, sexual orientation and religion or belief)
-Copying memos that are critical about someone to others who do not need to know ridiculing or demeaning someone – picking on them or setting them up to fail
-Exclusion or victimisation
-Unfair treatment
-Overbearing supervision or other misuse of power or position
-Unwelcome sexual advances – touching, standing too close, the display of offensive materials, asking for sexual favours, making decisions on the basis of sexual advances being accepted or rejected
-Making threats or comments about job security without foundation
-Deliberately undermining a competent worker by overloading and constant criticism
-Preventing individuals progressing by intentionally blocking promotion or training opportunities.

Harassment are not necessarily face to face. They may also occur in written communications, email, phone, and automatic supervision methods such as computer recording of downtime from work or the number of calls handled if these are not applied to all workers.

Harassment is extremely frustrating to deal with, and can be difficult to prove in court. However, if there is sufficient evidence, you can get a restraining order and the offender can be charged with a crime, either for violating the order or for the harassment itself.
