The employer is automatically liable if a supervisor’s harassment causes economic harm to an employee, even if the employer was never previously informed about the harassment. Is this fair to employers?

 

answer:

Employers are liable for the discriminatory acts of their “agents, and supervisors are agents of their employers and thus employers are liable for a supervisor’s harassment that causes economic harm to an employee, even if the employer was never previously informed about the harassment. This is fair to employers because employers delegate authority to supervisors and supervisors act as agents on behalf of employers. Thus it is the responsibility of employers to prevent supervisors from harassing employee .
