Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a boss’ attention: My boss has always been really creepy towards me and constantly follows me around, and lately he has been commenting on my perfume.
My boss has always been really creepy towards me and constantly follows me around, and lately he has been commenting on my perfume. I have been wearing the same perfume for about a year and just recently he decided he didn’t like it. He told me it was hurting his eyes and irritating his allergies so I stopped wearing it. A few days later he told me it was irritating him again, when in fact, I didn’t have any on. He even proceeded to smell my bare skin and told me it’s “the soap I use in the shower.” Ever since then everyday he comments on my perfume, when I am not wearing any, and have told him this many times and he asks other coworkers what they think behind my back. He seems to be the only one with the problem. Is this sexual harassment?
