Nobody wants to work in a stressful environment. While there is always natural stress associated with your job, you shouldn't have to concern yourself with other types, such as sexual harassment from a coworker.
If you are put in this position, you have two options: You can open your mouth and fight back, or you can sit around and hope that your problem goes away with time.
You have a variety of rights as an employee, some of which are meant to provide you with protection from retaliation.
The problem with workplace harassment is that it can impact your on the job performance, as well as your personal life. For example, the emotional stress at work could take a toll on your personal relationships at home. Taking this one step further, the stress could eventually lead to a separation or divorce from your spouse.
