Allen, Ben T.
This booklet on sexual harassment on college campuses covers sexual harassment law, harassment prevention, protection from liability, and handling allegations. Chapter 1, "What Is Sexual Harassment?" defines the term and gives an overview of sexual harassment law. Chapter 2, "How Does Sexual Harassment Law Apply in Actual Situations?" illustrates these legal concepts including faculty-student issues and student-student issues with numerous examples. Subsequently, chapter 3, "What Is the Liability of the Administrator and Institution?" discusses the consequences if sexual harassment does occur and the costs involved in litigation; and chapter 4, "Practices To Implement Sexual Harassment," provides suggestions for what administrators must know to investigate sexual harassment claims and specific actions to take when allegations of sexual harassment occur. A final section outlines important elements of a sexual harassment policy. Appendixes contain samples of the forms and documents needed to create and maintain effective sexual harassment policies and procedures with a sample sexual harassment policy, a sexual harassment incident form, advice regarding sexual harassment, a sexual harassment survey, and list of additional resources. (Contains 17 references.) (JB)
