What constitutes sexual harassment and sexual advance?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Escobar v. WCL Capital Group Inc., 2020 HRTO 388 (CanLII):

The personal respondent touched her leg at lunches initiated and paid for by him and gave her massages touching her shoulders in the office. See Qui v. 2076831 Ontario Ltd., 2017 HRTO 1432 (“Qui”). The personal respondent’s blatant physical sexual conduct of putting his hand on her thigh is in my view sufficient to find sexual harassment and sexual advance.
