Overview

It is not always clear what actually constitutes «sexual harassment» or how it differs from other types of discrimination based on gender. Often, what is thought of as sexual harassment by one person might be considered simply rude or immature behavior by another. While sexual harassment is a major issue in American workplaces and schools, there is no bona fide consensus as to what sexual harassment really is.
This book is designed to bring together material on an issue that is currently troubling most workplaces and schools in the United States: the problem of how to deal with a distressing increase in sexual harassment claims in all areas of American life. It does not attempt to answer all of the questions of how best to prevent sexual harassment while preserving the rights of the accused - no book can provide such answers; rather, it is designed to provide readers with a variety of material to begin the journey of discovering these answers for themselves.
