We advise you to read the Act carefully to identify sexual harassment and also keep the following in mind as signals of the same: Attempts to influence/intimidate by linking professional advancement with sexual favors, or creating a hostile work environment through (for instance) sexually colored conversations, letters, telephone calls and text messages, or making demeaning comments about women's roles in society are all cases of sexual harassment.
