The employer will be liable for harassment by non-supervisory employees or non-employees over whom it has control (e.g., independent contractors or customers on the premises), if it knew, or should have known about the harassment and failed to take prompt and appropriate corrective action.When investigating allegations of harassment, the EEOC looks at the entire record: including the nature of the conduct, and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred.
If the supervisor's harassment results in a hostile work environment, the employer can avoid liability only if it can prove that: 1) it reasonably tried to prevent and promptly correct the harassing behavior; and 2) the employee unreasonably failed to take advantage of any preventive or corrective opportunities provided by the employer.Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws.Timberland has new limited-edition 6-inch Boots out now the outdoors brand describes as “downright intimidating.” Inspired by snakes, the “White Serpent” 6-Inch Premium Waterproof Boots features a reptilian-patterned leather upper with metallic red rustproof eyelets for a look that’s sure to grab attention.Along with being an eye-catching style, this boot is built to withstand winter’s harshest weather.They can do this by establishing an effective complaint or grievance process, providing anti-harassment training to their managers and employees, and taking immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains.
Employers should strive to create an environment in which employees feel free to raise concerns and are confident that those concerns will be addressed.

Petty slights, annoyances, and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not rise to the level of illegality.
To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile, or offensive to reasonable people.
