The EEOC has established a task force to identify strategies to prevent workplace harassment, according to incoming EEOC Chair Jenny R. Yang, who presided over her first commission meeting on Jan. 14.
Harassment is alleged in approximately 30% of all charges filed with the EEOC. “Preventing harassment from occurring in the first place is far preferable to remedying its consequences,” Yang said. The task force will focus on preventing sexual, race-based and disability-related harassment.
