Despite the highly publicised legal battles of recent years, there is still little public agreement on what kinds of behaviour constitute sexual harassment. Some managers refuse to accept that it could occur in their own organisations, or even that sexual harassment exists at all.
But sexual harassment is an endemic problem in workplaces, with serious personal, legal and organisational consequences. How should managers deal with such a complex, sensitive and emotional issue?

, Estella Engelberg-Moston and Stephen Moston offer straightforward answers to difficult questions:
