The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence emphasized the importance of companies taking a serious look at their working environments.
“It is critical that organizations and institutions take allegations of harassment and assault with the utmost seriousness, and swiftly take action to ensure their work environment is safe and healthy for all employees. Many victims of workplace harassment do not come forward out of fear of retaliation or losing their job. In order to encourage reporting and truly create a positive and professional culture, leaders must confront problematic behavior when it’s brought to their attention, and workplaces must prioritize the prevention of, and response to, harassment,” said Amanda Grady Sexton, the coalition’s director of public affairs.
She added that workplaces of all sizes should contact their local crisis center for more information about local resources, in-service training opportunities, and best practices around addressing the problems.
