What is harassment? Harassment in the workplace is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the laws in many states. Employers can be held liable for harassment by supervisors, coworkers, and nonemployees such as customers or vendors. Employers should have strong policies against sexual harassment and clear procedures for reporting harassment. Sexual harassment training for supervisors and employees should include information on what sexual harassment is, how to prevent it, and how to report harassment at work.
