EEOC reconvenes sexual harassment task forceReprints
Various experts are scheduled to testify when the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reconvenes its Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace on Monday.
Witnesses and task force members will address harassment in the workplace in light of the “#MeToo” movement and discuss how employers can, and have, worked to transform themselves and prevent and stop harassment, the agency said Tuesday in a statement.
The meeting will be held at agency headquarters, 131 M St. NE, Washington, D.C., from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern time and is open to the public.
The Select Task Force, which was co-chaired in 2015 and 2016 by EEOC commissioners Chai R. Feldblum and Victoria A. Lipnic, who is now the agency’s acting chair, released a report on its findings in 2016 that highlighted that 45% of alleged harassment charges received by the commission were based on sex.
