Coming in the wake of deeply controversial prosecutions of two professors for sexual harassment—which led to lawsuits, a free speech crisis , administrative deceit, and possibly even the death of one of the faculty members due to the stress associated with SIUC's treatment of him—what could SIUC possibly be thinking? As Azhar writes: In fact, SIUC's policy severely misapplies sexual harassment law, violating the First Amendment rights of students and faculty.

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: A Primer
Although businesses know it exists, they appear unsure of what to do about it. As a result, the specter of employer liability for sexual harassment continues to loom over the workplace. 7 Failure to adopt a pro-active and aggressive stance on this issue, how ever, can result not only in costly lawsuits, but also in a loss of employee morale, decline in productivity, and an erosion of a company's public image. 8 That businesses are still taking chances may reflect a failure to adequately consider the risks.
