Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Sexual harassment is a pressing national issue in both the public sphere and many workplaces.

Explore our analysis into sexual harassment discrimination complaints to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or local Fair Employment Practice Agencies (FEPA) below, including the ways in which sexual harassment cases vary in number and in legal outcome by both state and industry.
