Help of Door County is working to prevent sexual harassment in the area by offering ways to confront it. A recently released EEOC study showed that at least one in four people are affected by workplace sexual harassment. Executive Director of Help of Door County Steve Vickman offers some advice in dealing with the problem of sexual harassment and domestic abuse.
Vickman says anytime offensive comments are made about women, even when they are not present, the person needs to hear that it is not tolerable behavior. He added that men can be victims of sexual harassment as well. According to a Washington Post survey, ten percent of men have experienced sexual harassment at work.
