Harassment at work

Harassment issues have been on the front burner for the past decade, and behavior that was once considered acceptable is now filling courtrooms. It is important to know that everyone within a work environment shares a degree of liability if a harassing or hostile situation is created. Gone are the days when the brunt of blame falls solely on the people “at the top.” It is crucial to find out the procedure for dealing with harassment at your company and to follow the procedure immediately if you suspect a harassment situation. If no procedure is in place and you suspect harassment, talk to an attorney.
