Thanks to Workplace Prof Blog for this story about a nasty weather channel anchor who apparently believed his female co-hosts were there for his amusement. What is the responsibility of a Canadian employer to ensure this sort of thing does not happen? What sorts of legal proceedings would a woman have available to her to fight this type of misconduct in Canada? Hint: there are statutory mechanisms and common law action possibilities. Are these legal mechanisms sufficient? Why, or why not?
