In Lyle v. Warner Brothers Television, the California Supreme Court ruled that salacious language, if job-related or if not intended to harass or discriminate against the gender of the complainant, does not violate Title VII. The substance of the ruling is described, and suggestions given to employers to protect against sexual discrimination charges. The panel and audience members then discuss sexual harassment.
