No Touching In The Workplace!  (Anywhere?) 

I just posted the third, and last, workplace sexual harassment dialogue with my employment partner, Amy Epstein Gluck (“AEG”) in Above The Law.

Amy has helpfully guided me to a deeper and more thorough understanding of this issue – as it appears to women.  In the dialogue, Amy clarified and expanded upon my original “9 tips”  for men on how not to be a sexual harasser in the workplace.

The first two Above The Law posts were published here (Part I) and here (Part II).

Turns out that despite my best intentions, I missed the boat on a number of issues.

For example, I was unprepared for the reasoned pushback on my “tip” that there should be “no touching — ever, anywhere, on any part of the body.”
