I am with you on this. Him lawyering up is a waste of his money in my opinion. I don't know the size of the company he works for, but I have had employees threaten to sue me for racial discrimination, age discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and lastly gender discrimination. In each instance all I had to do to make it go away was offer another month or two of severance, in return they signed agreements agreeing not to go forward with court.So yes, men can and are sexually harassed. If they are being threatened with job loss, or some other form of retaliation, filing an action is proper. If your getting all offended and afraid, and feel the need to report it, if some chick below your minimum standards tell you to call her, its basically horse shyt and you maybe just seeking drama and attention.
In any case none of the cases had any validity. People basically know that its more cost effective for a company to pony up one or two months of additional pay than to go to court. My funniest complaint was a woman alleging that she was discriminated agains because of her age, her color (black), and her sexual orientation. I cut the check. But I had a good laugh. Because her supervisor on that project was also black, over 55 years of age, and....also a lesbian. Sometimes you just can't win. Some people will always find a way to be a victim.
