Sexual Harassment Archives

Deadlines on discrimination claims employees should know about

In our last post, we asked the question of whether employees dealing with sexual harassment on a regular basis is the new normal. The question arose in the midst of the latest payout by Fox News to remove someone reportedly accused of harassing female employees. Indeed, the Bill O’Reilly situation is outside of the norm (with regards to payouts for problem employees). But we are concerned because there are potentially thousands of young women who are afraid to speak out against discrimination because they fear losing their jobs.   

Is sexual harassment the new normal?

Sexual harassment in the workplace is sadly becoming the new normal. While this may be shocking to some and offending to others, it is unfortunately a statement that has strong statistical roots. On the heels of the recent story regarding Fox News’ payments to settle alleged sexual harassment claims against Bill O’Reilly, we have noticed a disturbing trend of high profile sexual harassment incidents.

Simple rules for those in office romances

Nothing can spark gossip in the office more than rumors of an office romance. After all, who doesn’t like a love story that starts at work. When you really think about it, we spend a majority of our days in the office, and our co-workers can sometimes know us better than our family members and spouses.

Am I a victim of sexual harassment?

Sexual harassment can be a stressful and traumatic experience that no one should have to endure while in the workplace. After all, we spend a great deal of our lives at work, so having to deal with demeaning, disrespectful, and of course, illegal treatment can cause a great deal of strife in one’s life.

How employees can avoid trouble at holiday parties

At this time of year, it is customary for businesses and organizations to have holiday parties. Depending on where you work, the gathering may be at the office or at a separate location. Regardless of where the party is, it is not uncommon for people to “let their hair down” and have a good time. This is especially true when people are liberal with their alcohol consumption, or mistletoe leads to awkward moments.

Standing up for the rights of employees who have suffered sexual harassment

Under ideal circumstances, an individual employee should be judged solely based upon his or her work performance and product. However, in the real world, employees in all industries and at all levels routinely confront discrimination, harassment and hostilities related to their sex, religion, nationality, age, disability and sexual orientation.
