Other Legal Issues

Although the Supreme Court has the final word on sexual harassment cases, litigation has proved broad enough that there are many unsettled questions that still remain in regards to sexual harass-ment. These questions include the proper standard to be imposed in sexual harassment cases, whether a “reasonable person” should be more like a reason able man or a reasonable woman. Also, whether employers can be held liable for “second-hand sexual harassment,” sexual harassment not directed at the plaintiff. Another issue is whether is constitutes sexual harassment when a supervisor creates an equally hostile environment for both men and women. These are just some of the issues currently unresolved in the area of sexual harassment law.
