Editorial Reviews

New York Times
The book’s list of statutes, cases, sample surveys and letters, and resource organizations make it an excellent reference.

Sexual Harassment on the Job contains everything you’ll want to know about sexual harassment, but were afraid to ask — whether you are a business owner or employee.

WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women
It is intolerable to be subjected to intimidating, harassing or downright abusive behavior, day in and day out, in the environment from which you derive your income. In many cases the law is not clearly defined or understood, leaving those being harassed unsure of what to do. Preventive measures and education are the emphasis of Sexual Harassment on the Job. Knowing what is legally considered to be harassment and letting the harasser know you know is sometimes all it takes, but if all else fails, a full discussion of your legal options and how to use them is provided. You won't like everything you see here, but at least you will know where you stand.
