4) A–Correct.

Sexual harassment in the workplace need not be a specific, sexually oriented “harassment” of an individual. Successful claims can arise in working environments where, for example, dirty jokes are not discouraged and embarrassing statements are made that are not directed toward any specific individual. If a staff member offended by such a “sexually harassing environment” raises the issue with management and receives no significant, documented effort toward addressing it, the groundwork is laid for a lawsuit, possibly a successful one.
