Confronting sexual harassment at work

It would be wonderful to believe that sexual harassment in the workplace would by now be a thing of the past. While the ideas that justify sexual harassment remain stuck in another era, this behavior is still unfortunately very present in many offices and work environments around the country.

Employees can be proactive in preventing harassment

You have worked hard to start your career. You studied hard and got an education. You’ve done internships and worked entry-level positions. You know your field. You researched competition and applied for the perfect job. As you grow in your new role, you will want to know what the duties of your employer are. You will also want to know what is expected of you as an employee. If your employer has a handbook, study it. Know how what the goals and policies of the company are. Know what your benefits are and how they work.
