A victim of sexual harassment can be a man or a woman. An employer's managers and supervisors play an important role in implementing each of these steps. Managers and supervisors should be trained to enforce the policy, sensitized to recognize improper conduct among coworkers when it occurs, and educated about the appropriate actions to take to prevent and remedy misconduct. Supervisors should take effective measures to ensure no further apparent or alleged harassment occurs pending completion of an investigation. This can be done formally at employee meetings and informally through managers' and supervisors' conversations with their reports. They should assure employees that no retaliation will be taken against anyone who files a complaint and that their complaints will be handled as discreetly as possible.
