Brit+Co: Senators and Experts Say Government Should Track the Cost of Sexual Harassment

January 29, 2018 | by

Brit+Co covered legislative efforts to have the Department of Labor track how much sexual harassment costs women. 

Noreen Farrell, Executive Director at Equal Rights Advocates, a national civil rights organization fighting gender discrimination at work and in education, says that government intervention is absolutely necessary to better protect women at work.

“When it comes to sexual harassment, we cannot fix what we do not measure,” Farrell tells Brit + Co. “Identifying how workplace trends intersect with sexual harassment complaints will be key. If we are serious about getting a full and accurate picture about the economic cost of sexual harassment, the Department of Labor and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (which tracks discrimination complaints) will have to coordinate.”
