EEOC Continues Sexual Harassment Pursuit

Sexual harassment is an issue many HR departments have to contend with. A whopping 11,364 sexual harassment complaints were received by the EEOC & FEPA combined in 2011 and it’s looking like the EEOC is set to continue its aggressive pursuit of claims in 2013. There have been a number of settlements announced this year, including Carrols Corp. who settled for $2.5 million, South Loop Club for $100,000 and ABC Cake Shop & Bakery for $200,000.

Having adequate sexual harassment and retaliation policies in place and enforcing them is a key part of avoiding such problems. While training supervisors on preventing and responding to sexual harassment helps ensure your front line managers reduce the risk to your employer.
