Sexual harassment can have an incalculable cost for victims, their families, friends and coworkers. Any form of sexual conduct in the workplace is inappropriate, and may constitute sexual harassment if the actions or comments are unwanted or threatening. But recognizing sexual harassment is only half the battle. If action isn't taken quickly, and the situation is not resolved fairly, a company can face lawsuits and hefty fines. In fact, the company's reputation, business relationships and financial security could depend on how a manager or supervisor handles a sexual harassment incident.
