Is a male employee complaining about behavior you would clearly see as sexual harassment if the employee were a woman? If so, do something about it.

Recent case: Jeffrey complained that a male supervisor was constantly making comments like “come and give me [oral sex]” and sometimes groped male employees’ groins. Management ignored the situation.

Jeffrey sued, alleging sexual harassment. He pointed out that female employees weren’t treated the same way.

The court said the case could proceed. The fact that the supervisor was allegedly grabbing men’s crotches but not women’s could support a sexually hostile work environment claim. (Barrows v. Seneca Foods, No. 12-970, 2nd Cir., 2013)
