Sexual Harassment Archives

Sexual harassment is common in the medical community

The unfortunate reality, which has become more clear in recent years, is that workplace sexual harassment seems to be common in almost every single industry. If you thought there was a stereotypical industry that contained most harassment cases or that there were "safe" industries where that sort of thing did not happen, you're probably wrong. It can and does happen anywhere.

Indiana lawmaker working to close sexual harassment loopholes

An Indiana state representative who says that she was the victim of sexual harassment has introduced four bills aimed at holding state officials and lawmakers accountable for such behavior. Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon of Munster is one of the women who has accused Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill of inappropriate behavior. Another one of his accusers works in the Indiana Senate.

Should waitresses expect to be harassed on the job?

If you're an Indianapolis waitress, you work hard for your tips. You realize that the paltry hourly wage you're paid will never pay the bills. You need to remain fast on your feet, have a keen memory for orders and regulars' favorites and a ready smile for all you serve in order to make ends meet.

Sexual harassment in the workplace

Recent allegations made against powerful people in entertainment and politics have shone new light on sexual harassment across all industries and in all states, including Indiana. An outgrowth of the newfound focus on workplace sexual misconduct is the "me too" campaign, which has provided a platform for men and women to come forward with details of their experiences working in diverse work environments. Companies large and small have and do face legal actions based on the manner in which they handle sexual harassment cases.

What employers can learn from Hollywood

Allegations of sexual harassment in Hollywood may be getting the attention of the mainstream media at the moment. However, the lessons learned in those cases could be helpful for Indiana employers. Ideally, when a worker reports an incident of sexual harassment, his or her employer will work to resolve the situation properly instead of trying to make it go away. Investigations should be prompt, thorough and properly documented regardless of the nature of the harassment.

How employees can help prevent harassment in the workplace

Although sexual harassment does occur in workplaces, not everyone is actively involved. There are sometimes witnesses who have observed the harassment or have heard of incidents occurring. Indiana employees can help prevent future incidents by taking action.
