What is sexual harassment and how to avoid it?

Can you give me the correct definition of sexual harassment? I have had several employees ask me to define it specifically. Sexual harassment is a type of gender discrimination. It is any unwelcome sexual advance or conduct on the job that creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment. It is any offensive conduct related to an employee's gender that a reasonable woman or man should not have to endure.
