Workplace sexual harassment has taken on a new focus of public awareness in recent months. This book reviews the legal issues of this subject. The law is not as simple as one might expect. To illustrate but one example, employer liability for the wrongful conduct of its employees is not straightforward in most Canadian jurisdictions. In fact, it is often very difficult to establish.
This book reviews the remedy, both by human rights complaint and by civil action, available to the victims of sexual harassment, including a summary of damage awards in each jurisdiction and the tax implications of such claims.
