While the #MeToo movement inspired many men and women to come forward with their stories, sexual harassment is still a very real problem in many organizations.
Unfortunately, in the corporate workplace, 75% of workplace sexual harassment goes unidentified and 39% of employees don’t believe their concerns will be addressed. Many of the people doing the harassment are in positions of power, therefore making taking action harder. This leaves the people who have been harassed feeling anxious, isolated, diminished, and not sure about the best next steps to take. Targets may experience both physical (headaches, stomachaches, insomnia, etc) as well as fear, self-blame, self-doubt, depression, and withdrawal.
However, there are powerful steps employees and leaders can take to moderate and diminish unwanted behavior.
Why you should Attend
Unfortunately, in the corporate workplace, 75% of workplace sexual harassment goes unidentified and 39% of employees don’t believe their concerns will be addressed. This webinar will help you understand your rights, and make careful, best-practice decisions about how to get appropriate help, and perhaps even file a claim.
The US Equal Opportunity and Employment Commission defines sexual harassment in the terms below:
- It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person's sex. Harassment can include "sexual harassment" or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature
- Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person's sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general
- Both target and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex. Retaliation for reporting unwanted behavior is also against the law
- The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer
Even with these guidelines, sexual harassment may be difficult to discuss, document, and report.
