Workplace Harassment: What It is and What to Do About It

In 2009 alone, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ordered that $294,200,000 (that’s 294.2 million dollars!) be paid out for discrimination and harassment charges. No wonder companies are working to be more proactive in preventing harassment.
