Combatting Workplace Harassment with “Fully Resourced” Complaint Systems, Independent Investigations and a New Approach to Training: A Preview of the 2017 Proposed EEOC Enforcement Guidance and Effects of #MeToo
Kirsten Scheurer Branigan co-authored an article entitled “A Preview of Proposed EEOC Enforcement Guidance and Effects of #MeToo,” with Jessica Stein Allen. The issue of providing “fully resourced” complaint systems, training and independent investigations to combat workplace harassment were explored in the article, which was published in the New Jersey Law Journal on March 19, 2018. Last year’s #MeToo movement thrust the systemic workplace sexual harassment epidemic into the national spotlight. This pervasive crisis, however, has long persisted across all industries. Now, more than ever, employers need specific universal guidance on how to prevent and remediate sexual harassment as well as other forms of workplace harassment. The much anticipated 2017 Enforcement Guidance on Unlawful Harassment from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will provide critical and concrete methods to combat harassment in the workplace.
