Two recent cases out of federal district courts in the 7th Circuit should reinforce to employers important lessons in insulating themselves from sexual harassment claims. In both cases, the allegedly harassed employees quit before complaining about the harassment or allowing the employer to take prompt and appropriate corrective action. The cases are a reminder to employers to review and revise their harassment policies, and to make sure supervisors and employees are properly trained about harassment and how to respond to it.
