Types Of Harassment  

There are many kinds of harassment. The most common feature of any harassment is that it is intended to terrify the victim through repeated actions. Harassment causes the victim psychological set backs, which are publicly stated as incorrect.

The most common type of harassment is sexual harassment. This includes use of unwanted sexual language, threats, actions, intimate physical touching and other inviting sexual actions and gestures which are not liked by the victim. Sexual assault also comes under this prerogative. Asking for dates repeatedly upon denial, creating sexual attention by posting pornographic pictures or sending such emails also forms part of sexual harassment. In a workplace, such actions are viewed very seriously and demand immediate investigations.
Another type of harassment is the creditor’s harassment. This type of harassment occurs when a creditor harasses the debtor repeatedly through various means. The victim is harassed by repeated contact through telephone, using inappropriate language and by sending repeated reminders at odd hours.

Sometimes people are also harassed unnecessarily by the police. It mainly occurs because they take undue advantage of their position and power. In such cases, the victim is unfairly treated by the police due to the advantage that they already gain because of being upholders of law. Such cases are very difficult to prove.

Stalking is yet another form of harassment in which the actions of the stalkers are harmless if taken as out of the subject. If viewed seriously, this might appear threatening. Sometimes even simple actions of the stalker like making a telephone call can also be threatening to the victim. Other types of harassment may include bullying. However, it is very difficult to ascertain and prosecute.
