Harassment in the workplace can come in many forms: it can be sexual, physical, or psychological. Often, the terms bullying, abuse, and manipulation will be tied to harassment. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a report detailing workplace harassment in 2016. They found that at least one in four people are affected by workplace sexual harassment, that 75% of harassment victims experienced retaliation, and that sexual harassment costs companies millions. In the United States alone, companies paid out $681.7 million from 2010 to 2016 through EEOC processes. Although the EEOC doesn’t have comparable data to other agencies, they stated that they suspect the costs are similar. Training on the legality of harassment and being a bystander does nothing to prevent it, it takes an active effort to create a safe work environment that doesn’t see any harassment ever.
