Posts in Harassment.

In the latest sign of an increased emphasis on harassment, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently announced filing seven lawsuits against various employers charging them with harassment. Five of these claims involved alleged sexual harassment, two alleged racial harassment, and one also included a claim of harassment based on national origin.

Currently, harassment, stalking and threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction are all crimes – unless you are a union member engaged in a labor dispute. Yesterday, April 22, 2015, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed a bill to end the crimes code carveout allowing parties to a labor dispute to stalk, harass, and make deadly threats.
