The question recently came up in the Workforce Online Legal Forum, "Can supervisors be 'individually' liable for sexual harassment?"

On a federal level, the answer, generally, is no, although there are exceptions to this rule for high level employees and agents, or sole proprietorships. Rules under state common law or discrimination statutes vary from state to state. Your state fair employment practices agency can provide you more information.
