Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

 

Big topic in the news right now: sexual harassment in the work place – and every place! Hollywood, Washington DC, Alabama malls, TED, many places, many victims, many perps.

What is sexual harassment? Trying to get a clear notion I went to philosophy sites to find an answer.

Sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or sexually directed remarks constitute sexual harassment when submission to such conduct is made a condition of academic or employment decisions, or when such conduct persists despite its rejection.

Sexual harassment is a serious violation of professional ethics, and should be regarded and treated as such by members of the profession. Colleges and universities should supply clear, fair institutional procedures under which charges of sexual harassment on campus can be brought, assessed, and acted on. – from the APA

Next I checked with the “DAILYNOUS” the profession’s information and news site.

There I found reports of cases, lawsuits, and an interview with Ruth Chang.

Now I am asking friends and colleagues to submit articles on the topic. I’ll keep you posted!

NB: I am collecting the series here.

Most cases of corporate misconduct are forgotten soon after a fine or settlement is announced, but the Wells Fargo phony account scandal seems to have real staying power. . . .

It’s been reported that California Attorney General Kamala Harris is considering criminal identity theft charges against the bank over the millions of bogus accounts and the related fees that were improperly charged to customers. The AG’s office has demanded that Wells turn over a mountain of documents about accounts created not only in California but also in other states when California employees were involved.
