LOS ANGELES -- Steve Wyard thought he knew what sexual harassment looked like: a put-out-or-lose-your-job overture. Now he's not so sure. "Have we gotten to the point now where men can't say, 'That's a nice dress' or 'Did you do something with your hair?"' says the veteran sales associate for a Los Angles company. "The potential problem is you can't even feel safe saying, 'Good morning' anymore." The sexual misconduct allegations that have brought down powerful men in Hollywood, media, politics and business are sending a shiver through the workplace. Men are wondering if it's still OK to hug a female colleague or ask about her weekend. And some are asking themselves if they ever, perhaps even inadvertently, crossed the line. If Garrison Keillor, the gentle-natured former host of public radio's "A Prairie Home Companion," can be fired for accidentally (he said) placing his hand on a woman's bare back, could they get in trouble for something similar? CEO Tom Turner of Bitsight Technologies, a cybersecurity company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that held a training session for its 270 employees on sexual harassment last month, worries about the effect the national furor will have on the workplace. Turner says his business takes pride in being a place where people enjoy being around each other. The company's website features photos of employees taking part in ski trips and parties. "With what all is going on in the media, there could be a tendency to go so far that you actually lose what is special about your company," he says. Wyard, who is retiring at the end of the month after 35 years with a company that supplies industrial washers and dryers, says he can't recall anyone bringing a sexual harassment complaint during his time there. He chalks that up in part to the family atmosphere he says exists at a business that has employed many of the same people for decades, including fathers and daughters who work together. It's fostered a culture among its 70 employees, he says, "where you just treat everybody the way you'd want them to treat your sister." But he says his wife, the CEO at a health maintenance organization, got a complaint from a woman just last month who
