Unwanted physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of a sexual nature
If the conduct is of a sexual nature, this is unlawful in itself and you do not have to compare yourself to how somebody of the opposite sex would be treated. This could include:
Comments about the way you look which you find demeaning
Questions about your sex life
Sexual demands by a member of your own or the opposite sex
Incidents involving touching and other physical threats are criminal offences and should also be reported to the police.
Again, the conduct must be done with the purpose of, or have the effect of, violating your dignity, or of creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for you.
You will also have a claim for harassment if your employer treats you less favourably because you have rejected, or submitted to, either form of harassment described above.
Given the tenor of the accusations, i can see why they are reluctant to go to court. They don't stand a chance.
