Sexual harassment claims at federal workplaces on the rise - | The Curse of Asmodeus |

Sexual harassment claims among federal employees are up 36% in recent years. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is out with a new report detailing sexual harassment in the federal workplace. The commission says claims went up between 2015 and 2018. But these numbers don’t properly represent the reality as many incidents go unreported. Many federal employees aren’t reporting sexual harassment within their agencies because they’re afraid of retaliation. The commission says federal employees have fewer protections than their counterparts in the private sector because civil service laws haven’t evolved with the times.
