Question How do you determine employee harrassment?
Answer Maria - That is a very broad question. What type of harassment? It makes a diference. The rule of thumb is "Would a reasonable person of the same type as the complainant perceive the behavior being directed at him or her to be offensive?" Keep in mind that generic bad behavior not specifically directed at a person' race, gender, national origin, or any of the other protected classifications is not against the law.
