Employers must take bullying complaints seriously

What do you do when the following happens: you have a female employee who has reported that her male boss is condescending and mean to her. The employee says that she cannot work for the supervisor any more and wants you to do something about it. She is threatening to sue your company for harassment. A common reaction is panic: you do not want a harassment suit against your company. You ask around about the supervisor and find out from your other employees that he is a jerk by all accounts, but that he treats all employees badly: male/female, white/minority, all age groups, etc. So it is clear this is not just one employee or the fact that she is a female. Does the employee have a valid harassment complaint? Probably not.
