Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment is widespread in the American workplace, and has a profound impact on women. Sexual harassment ranges from derogatory comments to unwanted sexual advances and threats to sexual assault, and rape. Harassment can have particularly negative consequences for workers in low-wage jobs because these workers can least afford to have their livelihoods threatened. We are working to end harassment and ensure that all workers have an effective remedy when harassment occurs. The Fair Employment Protection Act provides crucial protections for workers from harassment.
