UW cracks down on sexual harassment, trains staff and students

Sexual harassment is a widespread problem in Wisconsin. It affects thousands of women in all fields, including education. Recently, the University of Wisconsin System implemented new training to combat sexual assault and harassment. All of its staff members and nearly 90 percent of students have now completed the training. Will it have an effect on sexual harassment in Wisconsin?

Veteran police officer alleges sexual assault and retaliation

From Milwaukee to Memphis and from Miami to Monterrey and all places in between, there are stories emerging every day about people standing up for their rights in workplaces. We read recently of a veteran police officer far south of us who filed a lawsuit alleging that she was sexually assaulted by a fellow cop and was then retaliated against for reporting the violation.

Parole officer settles sexual harassment lawsuit for $1.1 million

A parole officer recently had her lawsuit dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge. While that sounds initially like bad news, the reason for the dismissal is also reason for her to celebrate: she settled her claims against the Department of Corrections for $1.1 million.

Mariah Carey named in sexual harassment, retaliation lawsuit

A few hours after pop star Mariah Carey filed a $3 million lawsuit against her former executive assistant for violating a non-disclosure agreement, she got a response. Former assistant Lianna Shakhnazaryan filed a lawsuit that alleges failure to prevent discrimination and harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination, among other complaints.

Employers and employees disagree on workplace harassment

The national conversation regarding sexual harassment shows no sign of slowing down. Since multiple women accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of assault, workplace harassment has become a hot-button issue. The dialogue has prompted many employees to speak out about their experiences with harassment, and encouraged many employers to crack down on it.

“Undeniable” impact of #MeToo on America

The headlines in Milwaukee news outlets revealed a pattern of misconduct in some of the most desirable workplaces in America: in politics, media, technology, Hollywood and more. But behind the #MeToo headlines were women and men in less elevated jobs and industries – stores, hospitals, universities, factories and others – where sexual harassment was just as rampant as it was in the places reporters were interested in.
