Sexual Harassment Solutions at Work. Profiles of Successful Policy and Practice.
This publication profiles the successful efforts of eight organizations to develop programs and policies to prevent sexual harassment in their workplaces. The profiles highlight a facet of each organization's efforts. An introduction offers a blueprint for action. The first profile is a look at US West and the key elements for developing and implementing an effective antiharassment policy. The next case study shares some of NBC's strategies for best communicating policy and its importance to the workplace. The profiles on Michigan Consolidated Gas Company and Digital Equipment Corporation provide insights on how to conduct productive sexual harassment training for supervisors and employees. Du Pont and Pacific Gas and Electric Company are featured to explore their tools and strategies for creating an environment that encourages open dialogue on the issue. The publication then focuses specifically on women in nontraditional jobs--profiling Kansas City Power and Light's initiative to increase the number of women in male-dominated occupations on its worksites and help them succeed on the job. The final profile highlights a union's intervention on behalf of women workers by noting the United Auto Workers' practice of negotiating contract language regarding sexual harassment and the union's educational campaigns. Print, video, and case law resources are appended. (YLB)
