Question: If an employee is found to have harassed another employee, is there a legal requirement to keep them apart? If they continue to work together, is their consent necessary? 


Answer: Whether a harasser should be separated from the victim of harassment depends on a variety of factors and the circumstances of a given case. There is no single measure an employer must use in addressing such conduct.
