Many employers have set up investigatory policies and procedures. Even so, a review of recent sexual harassment court cases reveals that many supervisors still aren’t getting the message.
Off-color jokes, unwanted touching and even sexual assaults occur in the workplace with alarming regularity. Employers never tell their employees to commit these acts, but turning a blind eye appears to encourage the “hostile work environment” that leads to lawsuits. And it’s always the employer who pays.
