Sexual harassment Few workplace topics have received more attention in recent years than that of sexual harassment.  Since professor Anita Hill confronted Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas on national  television over a decade ago, the number of sexual harassment claims filed annually in the United  States has more than doubled.
