A: A Wisconsin lawyer needs to answer that for you. But from an employment lawyers perspective age is irrelevant. Any type of unwanted or unwelcome conduct if pervasive or severe is illegal. Once a manager or employer knows they have a duty to act so on this forum age is irrelevant for hostile workplaces or sex harassment.
