BuzzFeed: You Don’t Have A Right To Know The Outcome Of Your Sexual Harassment Complaint
Executive Director Noreen Farrell spoke with BuzzFeed about employee’s rights when it comes to workplace harassment investigations.
“Most workers don’t want to get engaged in litigation, they just want a situation handled quickly,” Noreen Farrell, executive director of the nonprofit Equal Rights Advocates, told BuzzFeed News. She thinks current harassment law is so vague that it’s “meaningless in many workplace contexts, especially for low-wage workers,” and it’s time for lawmakers to address the confidentiality issue. There would be some drawbacks to mandating that employers release private information about employees, but it wouldn’t be the first time Congress has required disclosure of the outcome of investigations.
