Sexual Harassment

The OEO developed and conducted sexual harassment awareness sessions for all managers, supervisors and employees designed to inform all personnel about sexual harassment and its prevention and elimination. The sessions included a videotape, lecture, discussion, and extensive question and answer periods.


The number of complaints increased in fiscal year 1987. Nine men filed complaints compared to eleven women; more minorities filed than nonminorities, and 11 of the minorities were Black. Details found in Figure C-1.
