Sexual Harassment: Issues and Answers. A Guide for: Education, Business, Industry.
Welzenbach, Lanora, Ed.; And Others
Legal issues concerning sexual harassment are examined, and advice regarding policies and procedures are offered as an update to a publication released by the College and University Personnel Association (CUPA) in 1981. Training methods and programs and special policy considerations for higher education are also covered. Of major concern is sexual harassment by supervisors and by coworkers in the workplace or by faculty members of students and by students of other students on campus. The institution remains responsible for establishing an harassment-free environment. In developing a policy to prevent sexual harassment, important issues are the degree of specificity of definitions and situations and the question of consenting sexual relationships between student and faculty and/or employee and supervisor. Appendices include: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Guidelines on Discrimination Because of Sex; a list of sexual harassment court cases; sample policies on sexual harassment from higher education, business, industry, and the federal government; a complaint or grievance form; a sexual harassment investigation checklist for managers; a model questionnaire on sexual harassment; actions recommended for alleged victims of sexual harassment; descriptive information on 15 films; and an updated 5-page bibliography of resources and articles on sexual harassment.
