Douglas, Joel M., Ed.
National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions Newsletter, v19 n3-4 Sept-Dec 1991 v20 n2 Apr-May 1992
Three separate newsletter issues examine the issue of sexual harassment on college campuses. Part I contains a general introduction to the topic and two articles. The first of these discusses the definition of sexual harassment by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the courts, the EEOC guidelines on conduct of a sexual nature that may constitute sex discrimination in employment, and developing federal and state court standards of legally actionable workplace sexual conduct for both quid pro quo and hostile environment type harassment. A selected bibliography lists 11 references concerning sexual harassment in employment. Part II also contains two articles. The first of these focuses on prevention and detection and urges employers to reduce their risks of being subject to sexual harassment complaints by taking affirmative steps to eliminate sexual harassment at the workplace. The article also discusses the legal requirements for employment policies and procedures that address sexual harassment and gives a point-by-point description of a seven-point program for preventing and detecting such harassment. The second article looks at ways faculty unions can respond to issues of sexual harassment. Part III includes articles on the increasing tort liability associated with sexual harassment complaints and the new legal remedies available to sexual harassment complainants following the recent enactment of the Civil Rights Law of 1991. References accompany most articles. (GLR)
