No. It is better for organisations to make it clear that sexual harassment isn’t acceptable, for example,make sure they have a policy about sexual harassment and that both staff and volunteers are aware of it.
Discriminating against people for ‘lawful sexual activity’ is also against the law. This applies to a volunteer having a consensual relationship with another volunteer, or a staff member.
