When is sexual conduct bad enough to be sexual harassment? The Fourth Circuit dealt with this issue in EEOC v. Fairbrook Medical Clinic (4th Cir. 2010).

The Fourth Circuit reversed and concluded the conduct was of a sexual nature, and it was severe and frequent enough. The Fourth Circuit discussed in some detail when conduct rises to the level of being unlawful sexual harassment.
