Sexual harassment awareness is having something of a “moment” right now. If you are not carefully analyzing your organization’s policies, protocols, and procedures regarding sexual harassment in the workplace, you may not be paying enough attention to this issue. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as well as other federal and state laws, impose an affirmative duty on employers to try to prevent sexual harassment.
Every day we are seeing new allegations against such well known people as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, former President George H.W. Bush, Senator Al Franken, Mark Halperin (an ABC news director), Michael Oreskes (an NPR news director), and Roy Price (head of Amazon Studios), just to name a few.
