Sexual harassment in the workplace is a prohibited practice under Section 703 of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1973. Inasmuch as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission holds supervisory personnel liable for the actions of their employees and outsiders with respect to the above policy, supervisory personnel are required to inform their staff of the institutional policy and of the seriousness of the issue.
