Discrimination and harassment in the workplace are regulated extensively by state and federal legislation. This legislation places obligations on employers to ensure they have a workplace free from discrimination and harassment. If employers do not comply with these obligations, they can be found vicariously liable for the discriminating or harassing conduct of their employees and contractors.
