Sexual harassment in the workplace is an epidemic. Polls have found that more than half of women in the United States have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. Seventy percent of Americans say there is a problem.
Decades of polls reveal that the problem is not new nor has it gotten any better. But that doesn’t mean victims of sexual harassment have to suffer in silence.
Sexual harassment is against the law, and countless people have brought cases against harassers for discrimination. Not only does it provide compensation for victims harassed by others at work but it helps discourage others from harassing coworkers.
