Harassment, a form of discrimination, is an obstacle to realizing equal employment opportunity and requires a proactive stance on the part of employers. Employers have a clear obligation to protect employees from harassment. The liability from harassment is predicated on appropriate preventive measures and the employer's response to reports of harassment. Harassment affects all protected classes, although sexual harassment claims are the most common. Employers are responsible for the prohibition of harassment of managers, employees, customers, and vendors.
