"The Equality Act says itís harassment where the behaviour is meant to or has the effect of either:
violating your dignity
creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment
This means itís harassment even if the person harassing you didnít mean to offend or intimidate you, as long as the harassment has one of the above effects.
If you go to court, the judge may have to decide if itís harassment or not. They will look at how the behaviour made you feel and whether itís reasonable for you to feel this way."
