Bloomberg BNA Publishes 2012 Edition of “Preventing Sexual Harassment and Other Workplace Harassment: A Fact Sheet for Employees”
ARLINGTON, Va., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Bloomberg BNA today announced publication of the 2012 Edition of Preventing Sexual Harassment and Other Workplace Harassment: A Fact Sheet for Employees, a tool that employers can use to strengthen an organization’s nonharassment policy.
Workplace harassment has become one of the most litigious areas of employment law, with thousands of cases being brought against employers, resulting in millions of dollars in litigation costs and awards. The Fact Sheet, available in eight-page booklet and fold-out formats, is useful to inform employees and supervisors of changes to sexual harassment and other workplace harassment law. It can be used in training, distributed annually to keep staff current on changes to harassment laws and policies, and displayed in common areas of the office or break rooms.
Preventing Sexual Harassment and Other Workplace Harassment: A Fact Sheet for Employees, 2012 Edition uses straightforward language to bring complex issues to a personal, understandable level. The 2012 Edition includes descriptions of important cases, including:
- Thompson v. North American Stainless, in which the U.S. Supreme Court held that a fired employee can allege retaliation based on the protest of a close associate
- Hernandez v. Yellow Transportation, Inc., in which a U.S. appeals court ruled that harassment is unlawful only if it is based on the protected status of the suing employee
- Kelley v. The Conco Companies, in which a California court held that sexually offensive behavior does not necessarily constitute sexual harassment
- EEOC v. Xerxes Corp., which established that an employer’s response to complaints of harassment must be reasonable, if not perfect
The author of the 2012 Edition of Preventing Sexual Harassment and Other Workplace Harassment: A Fact Sheet for Employees is David D. Kadue, a partner in Seyfarth Shaw, Los Angeles, CA, and co-author of Age Discrimination in Employment Law and Workplace Harassment Law.
