When people think of sexual harassment, they often think of women as the victims. However, this is not always the case. Men are also victims of harassment at the workplace and more males have come forward to report this offense. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 7,609 people filed sexual harassment reports in 2018. Approximately 15.9% of those claims were filed by males, a substantial increase from the 11% of claims that were filed in 1997. This number is thought to be even higher, however, as some men are too embarrassed or ashamed to report these types of incidents.
Racial discrimination in the Indiana workplace could happen at any point during the relationship between employer and employee. Any time that an employer makes a decision based not on merit but on race, this constitutes a possible violation of federal and Indiana state law. This could even include offenses that happen before an employee is even hired.
