Young Workers and Sexual Harassment In The Workplace

In a previous blog post, I commented on sexual harassment of young women in the workplace.  It is a real and growing problem - confirmed by statistics kept by the EEOC. According to an EEOC representative, an "alarmingly high" number of high school students are reporting sexual advances from their adult bosses and other supervisors.
"It's an incredibly serious problem," said Bill Cash of the EEOC in an interview.  Many teens are simply unaware that sexual advances in the workplace are unlawful or are too afraid to speak up.  No one especially a young worker should be subjected to such unlawful conduct in the workplace.  Anyone being subjected to sexual harassment needs to report it and contact an attorney.
