Is it Sexual Harassment?

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about sexual harassment:

My boss’s wife who works in the office, has been asking other co-workers if I am sleeping with her husband….Is this sexual harassment?

Signed, Worried

Dear Worried:

Apparently your coworkers have told you about the question by your boss’s wife. She can’t be guilty of workplace harassment because she doesn’t work there. However your coworkers might charged with sexual harassment if they start making fun of you or frequently repeating her accusations. You should talk to an attorney about the legalities of the situtation and what are your options.
