Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

It's not a pretty subject--but someone has to talk about it. Sexual harassment can confront any age and any gender in the workplace, and although the majority of employers do have written policies and procedures outlining actions to take, many workers simply ignore or avoid the topic. Lawyer Boland defines it in the two legal ways--quid pro quo and a hostile work environment--then explains the corporate point of view, remedies, and legal resources. Statistics enliven a somewhat dull prose, as do the frequently asked questions in the introduction. Thorough appendixes do the preliminary legwork, featuring endnotes, addresses of U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission offices, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, state-by-state Fair Employment Practices Laws and Antidiscriminatory Enforcement agencies. A necessary reference. Barbara Jacobs

By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 16, 2006
Format: Paperback
The primary U.S. law regarding sexual conduct in the workplace, which Congress enacted in 1964, has had a profound impact on American society and business. Attorney Mary L. Boland's comprehensive handbook tells employers and employees how to define and prevent this problem and explains what to do if you are a victim. She provides the right level of detail for nonlawyers, pointing out the kinds of issues, conditions and events that can trigger a complaint. The book is readable and clearly organized, with sections that explain employer responsibilities, legal resources and remedies - from filing a lawsuit to arbitration and mediation. Four appendices and a glossary add valuable information. We highly recommend this lucid, practical book to human resource managers, executives, small business owners and employees at every level, particularly victims of sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment in the workplace may not be as easily identified as leering moves on the parts of supervisors and co-workers: it's also a power play and individuals need help to get back in control. That's why SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE is so important: it defines and outlines different forms of such harassment, tells how to prevent it and how to file an effective complaint, and how to work with a lawyer and an employer. From compiling the initial report to escalating the complaint, SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE walks you through every move. An essential guide to making the right moves and understanding the law.
