Costco recently got hit with a $250,000 sexual harassment verdict. One might think what is the big deal? The twist in the Costco case is that Costco was found liable for sexual harassment that arose from not one of its own employees – but a customer! Dealing with sexual harassment claims is one of the most daunting tasks employers face. It is even more daunting when the employer has to address those who are responsible for the company being in existence – its customers. Now, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has recently issued new guidelines that set forth new ways in which the EEOC will investigate sexual harassment claims.

  • Understanding the EEOC's approach regarding employer liability for quid pro quo harassment and hostile working environments - who does the EEOC, consider as a supervisor?
