Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question. Although the employer is allowed the resolve the issue in any way they feel is appropriate, under sexual harassment/gender discrimination laws, if the behavior is not resolved or your daughter is harassed again, the employer would be liable under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Colorado laws. That would mean that she could file a discrimination/sexual harassment/hostile work environment complaint with the Colorado human rights agency or the EEOC, or she could hire an attorney and file suit. Her employer (and their employees) cannot retaliate for her filing a complaint or law suit.
Just to be clear though, there is nothing in the law of discrimination/sexual harassment that states they must handle the other employee in any particular way, and sex offenders are allowed to work in our society, so there isn't one set way they must handle this other than, as mentioned, they must ensure that the harassment stops and that there is no retaliation.
