Has the twenty-first century seen the beginning of the end of sexual harassment in the workplace?

Hardly.

As I discuss in Above The Law this week, employers must take note:

Anybody may be a workplace sexual harasser, not just coworkers or others employed by the same company. Actionable sexual harassment is not defined by who is doing it, but is a matter of the creation of a hostile workplace that remains unremedied when the employer has notice of it – irrespective of who is doing it.

Could be a co-worker.  Could be the FedEx courier, or the IT vendor.   Could be a client or customer.”
