The Law Regarding Sexual Harassment in the Workplace, Including Water Systems [The Water News Source]

Michael Klein discusses the importance of preventing sexual harassment in the workplace at water systems, in The Water News Source. Michael illustrates the scope of the problem and how it affects all levels of the employment hierarchy across workplaces, by citing several recent examples of sexual harassment cases in the public water sector.

In the article, Michael also defines what constitutes sexual harassment per the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and cautions public water systems not to rush to judgment when a claim is made. Ultimately, he advises that the best tool at employers’ disposal is prevention, which they can achieve through a combination of consistently addressing the subject, expressing unequivocal disapproval, developing appropriate sanctions for employees who violate these guidelines, and informing employees of their right to raise the issue under Title VII and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
