A sexual harassment lawsuit requires the existence of two principal facts or circumstances: (1) that an employee be subject to behavior motivated by sex or gender that has the effect of creating a hostile work environment; and, (2) failure by the employer to do anything to stop it. 

A sexual harassment lawsuit filed by two nurses against a hospital illustrates these requirements.  The nurses claim that a male co-worker exposed himself to them a number of times.  The nurses then reported this misconduct but not only did the hospital fail to take action, it suspended one of the nurses, according the nurses' lawsuit.
