Sexual Harassment Can Happen Anywhere

Even in the skilled, highly-educated workforce. The Hustle reports on recent harassment allegations coming from the tech industry in Silicon Valley.

For those employees enduring sex harassment, speak up. File a written complaint with human resources detailing the harassment. Request that an investigation be performed and that disciplinary action be taken against the harasser. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for filing the complaint.

For employers, draft and enforce an anti-harassment policy. Train your supervisors and workforce. Immediately investigate complaints of harassment, even if they come from habitual complainers and even if they implicate top performers or executive officers. Take prompt, appropriate action based upon the results of the investigation.
