Handling sexual harassment in Maryland workplaces

Studies show that while women are the most common victims of sexual harassment in the workplace, men are also subjected to harassment on a fairly regular basis. According to a poll completed in 2011, 25 percent of women and 10 percent of men reported having been sexually harassed.

Racism allegations by former employee of Squarespace

Maryland residents might use Squarespace for their tech needs in building websites for business or personal activities. The company began in 2004, and it has been quite successful in growing as a business, raising nearly $80 million in funds from a variety of investors. However, a former customer care employee has published an article alleging that the organization has many problems with discrimination, especially through sexism and racism.

Sexual assault on the job goes underreported

Some Maryland employees who face sexual violence at work may never report it, according to the advocacy group Futures Without Violence. This may be due to employees not knowing their rights or fearing they will lose their jobs. However, even undocumented immigrants are protected against sexual harassment in the workplace.
