Sexual Harassment Archives

Illinois strengthens sexual harassment, retaliation laws

Regular readers of our Wisconsin and Chicago metro area employment law blog know that news reports on TV and in the papers have often focused in recent months on stories about sexual harassment. Although coverage of the brave people who have come forward has been overwhelmingly positive, one aspect of their stories still receives too little attention: the workplace retaliation workers suffer after reporting sexual harassment.

2017 in review: #MeToo movement strikes back at sexual harassment

To say that the world went for a wild ride in 2017 is to understate the obvious. On virtually every front -- from politics and media to natural disasters, mass shootings and the solar eclipse -- the United States has seen, heard and felt things that were without precedent.

Wisconsin business leadership can tackle sexual harassment

Recent headlines are getting attention to longstanding problems in some workplaces. The spate of reports about sexual harassment in workplaces has many individuals considering how the behavior can be eliminated or reduced so that all workers feel safe. One professor feels that part of the solution resides with business leaders. Wisconsin business leaders can start by having and implementing anti-harassment policies for their businesses. 

Sexual harassment reporting takes courage, says Gretchen Carlson

A former Fox News anchor has spoken out about her experience with problems in the workplace. She claims that the former CEO of the media agency subjected her to sexual harassment. The case was later settled. In a recent statement to media, she expressed some opinions and feelings about the topic that workers in Wisconsin may find interesting. 

Good policy cuts down sexual harassment claims

An employer has a duty to ensure that employees feel safe in the workplace and that discrimination claims are taken seriously. Many employers make wise decisions when they anticipate issues beforehand and create workplace policies that protect individuals from sexual harassment. Businesses in Wisconsin and across the United States can take preventive measures to reduce unfair bias in the workplace. Employees can then depend on the company to enforce anti-discrimination and harassment measures so that the workplace remains a positive environment for all. 

Wisconsin city council weighs sexual harassment policies

Some people are asking whether the city council should be held to the same level of professional accountability as other city employees. The issue has come up in the Madison, Wisconsin city meetings before. The question is, are city council members employees or are they some other type of worker? A recent news story reports that some feel it is time for them to be considered employees and not exempt from employer sexual harassment trainings.
