A single event cannot typically be associated with harassment. If you did something and were told it was offensive, and then you stopped, it is typically not harassment. If you did or said something that was so egregious as to shock the senses, then there would obviously not be a need for someone to tell you to stop. You should know better. Harassment depends upon the circumstances and there is no clear cut answer

If you are a boss, you can do it by not promoting them or treating them differently than other people. It could also be as simple as looking at somebody of the other sex and licking your lips.

    This question is too general to permit an answer. Sometimes, use of offensive language can constitute harassment, but without knowing the precise facts and circumstances no lawyer can advise you.
