But I want to point out is that unlawful sexual harassment
can take the form of a much more subtle beast…
Risqué jokes, sexual banter, unwelcome requests for dates, and even swearing have all been identified in case law and legislation as giving rise to unlawful sexual harassment
You also need to remember that if unlawful sexual harassment
occurs in connection with the harassed person's employment, you could be held vicariously liable for the conduct.
This is why you need to be able to prove that you've done everything possible to prevent your employees from engaging in unlawful behaviour.
