Academic and Workplace Sexual Harassment: A Handbook of Cultural, Social Science, Management, and Legal Perspectives

Synopsis

This essential handbook features overviews of sexual harassment in kindergarten through high school, college and universities, and public and private sector workplaces. The contributors to this volume come from diverse backgrounds; their disciplines include psychology, sociology, law, English literature, and management. Through teaching about this issue, conducting research, creating policies and procedures, working with administrative agencies (such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office for Civil Rights), litigating cases, testifying as expert witnesses in Title VII and Title IX cases and working with state legislatures, the various authors have gained much knowledge of sexual harassment. School administrators, teachers, human resources professionals, and managers and supervisors in any workplace will greatly benefit from the insights in this volume. It is a unique compilation of findings from the social science, business, and legal fields. One of the truly unique features of this work is its emphasis on multicultural perspectives. It also reviews legal cases and presents actual tools for sexual harassment policies, procedures, and training programs in educational institutions and workplaces alike.
