Here are some numbers to help you see how “shame, fear, and cultural norms all allow sexual harassment to go underreported.”
In 2016, the EEOC released a comprehensive study of workplace harassment in the United States, which concluded that “anywhere from 25% to 85% of women report having experienced sexual harassment in the workplace.”
“One 2003 study found that 75% of employees who spoke out against workplace mistreatment faced some form of retaliation,” the EEOC report found.
Unwanted physical touching was formally reported only 8% of the time; and sexually coercive behavior was reported by only 30% of the women who experienced it. … Studies have found that 6% to 13% of individuals who experience harassment file a formal complaint.
“one in four reported having experienced some form of harassment in the workplace. But when specific acts of harassment were mentioned, like sexual coercion or crude jokes, 60 percent of women reported having experienced some form of sexual or gender harassment.”
Mandatory confidential arbitration hides “the problem on two fronts: They keep victims feeling isolated, and at times like the only people affected, and they insulate the perpetrator.”
