Congress Should Lead, Not Follow, On Protecting Victims Of Sexual Harassment

Опубликовано 14 ноября 2017, 21:29
A February 2017 story in Roll Call reported that four in ten women on congressional staff said that sexual harassment is a problem on Capitol Hill. There is no central Human Resources department on the hill making it difficult for individuals to know where to turn to report harassment or seek assistance. The Office of Compliance is in place to help member and congressional staff understand their rights, the OOC however is a confusing operation with varying rules and procedures. If a staff member does report harassment to the OOC they must navigate endless meandering of cumbersome obstacles to seek justice. Rep. Jackie Speier from California introduced legislation that would require all that members of Congress and staff undergo sexual harassment training every year. Speier said that the process currently in place is not victim friendly, and is “an institution-protection process.”
