Have a separate electronic communications policy, ... Let your employees know what you expect for company purposes.

They know the difference between right and wrong and what's acceptable and not acceptable, and they just choose to do otherwise.

You've got people who communicate by touching, ... We don't look at that as bad except for those people who say, 'This is an invasion of my privacy and space and I'm very offended.' We really have to keep looking at the world through somebody else's perspective.

They still don't feel comfortable, and they haven't been given the tools to know how to direct the employees, ... When they don't take any corrective stance, that's when inappropriate behavior rises to sexual harassment.
