What is the legal definition of harassment?
To get an injunction against harassment, you must show that the defendant has harassed you. For the purpose of an IAH, the law defines harassment as a series of acts (two or more) over any period of time that:
- is directed at a specific person;
- serves no legitimate purpose; and
- reasonably causes the victim to be seriously alarmed, annoyed or harassed.1
Harassment may also include defamation against an employer, unlawful picketing, trespassory assembly, unlawful mass assembly, concerted interference with lawful business activity, and taking part in a secondary boycott.1
