The days of happy alumni singing your praises seem to be over. More than three-quarters of departing workers say they would not recommend their ex-employer to others, according to a new Corporate Executive Board survey.

It is generally agreed that anti-discrimination laws don’t create a general code requiring workplace civility. Harassment lawsuits won’t normally fly unless the abuse is objectively and subjectively severe or pervasive enough to alter the terms and conditions of one’s employment. A recent case, Williams v.

But that doesn’t mean employers are powerless when they suspect abuse.
