An employee politely informed a coworker that they are involved and do not mix work with personal. She was asked again about her personal life on other occasions and feels uncomfortable and filled a harassment form.
While it would be helpful for the woman to say "no", as long as she makes it clear that the sexually inappropriate comment(s) are unwelcome, and if the sexual advances were to continue, then such could be considered sexual harassment. But there are many factors that lead to whether a case is viable (partly, whether the victim recipient complains to management; management's reaction to such a sexual harassment complaint; etc...). I'd suggest HR isn't 100% correct with its response. I urge you to contact an attorney to discuss further your situation. I hope that you first kept a copy of the form you filled out. It may land up helping you in the end.
