Q: Does this constitute workplace harassment?
Setting is a high school.

“Your dress really looks nice with your leggings“
“Your hair is just SO shiny, I just can’t stop looking at it”
Female employee (approx. age 45) is talking with a male student (approx age 16), who is obviously not telling her the truth. Female employee is looking at the male student waiting for an explanation. Male employee asks them “Are you to flirting with each other?”
