Who is a “supervisor” in a sexual harassment case?

A supervisor is an employee whom the employer has empowered to take tangible employment actions against the victim; that is, to make a significant change in employment status, such as hiring, firing, failing to promote, reassignment with significantly different responsibilities, or a decision causing a significant change in benefits. 

However, sexual harassment does not have to come only from a supervisor, it can also come from a co-worker or another manager who does not supervise you.
