Sexual harassment in any business can harm the company. In last week's post, we discussed how American Apparel is trying to stop the company's founder from being able to take the company back over. If you recall, sexual harassment complaints against the man were filed. The company took a stance against sexual harassment and ousted the man. Sadly, not all companies are willing to take such a firm stance.
The sad reality is that workers face sexual harassment on a daily basis. The sexual harassment can come from co-workers, supervisors and even clients. Just because sexual harassment is running rampant in our society doesn't mean that workers have to deal with these atrocious actions.
