Los Angeles Times: Mayor’s office won’t talk about ‘inappropriate behavior’ among Garcetti staff
Los Angeles Times spoke with ERA staff regarding the critical importance of transparency when dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace:
Jessica Stender, senior counsel at San Francisco-based nonprofit Equal Rights Advocates, said the mayor’s office should explain what it considers inappropriate behavior and how it handled the reports.
It’s possible to divulge details about the complaints while keeping the parties’ identities confidential, Stender said.
“Transparency to me is critical, and you can’t fix what you can’t see,” Stender said.
