ABSTRACT
Employers and courts have made substantial progress over the past several years in curbing sexual harassment in the workplace. Unfortunately for employers in California, though, the high court in that state has decided to ignore efforts of employers in a decision that could discourage employers from taking a proactive approach to preventing the problem. In several cases, the legal action has not only punished and halted sexual harassment at specific employers but also set out clear guidelines for other employers to follow regarding how to deal with sexual harassment and avoid or limit liability.
