Sexual harassment: A secretary's stereotype

There has been a long history of making light of sexual harassment in the workplace, particularly when it comes to secretaries and their bosses. Many people joke about the "sexy" secretary and what she must do to keep such an easy job, even though that's not really the case.

Suffering a head injury at work

Workplaces can pose many dangers for the employees who spend time in them each day. When employees suffer head injuries at work, they will need to seek medical attention immediately, and this can be costly. In addition, they will probably need to take unpaid leave in order to make full recoveries.

Study shows rise in drugged driving, limits of current tests

Drivers in New York are probably aware that with the legalization of recreational marijuana in seven states and Washington, D.C., there has been a rise in drugged driving. The Governors Highway Safety Association released a study showing that between 2006 and 2016, researchers saw a 16 percent rise in the number of fatally injured drivers with drugs found in their systems. The total was 44 percent in 2016.

Anxiety is a common outcome of workplace harassment

When we are at work, we are in a professional environment. We expect that our coworkers will treat us with the same respect as we treat them. However, this is not always the case, and, unfortunately, issues regarding factors surrounding race, gender, sex or disability frequently arise in the workplace. Many of these issues and incidents can constitute sexual harassment.

Inappropriate behavior seen in Interior Department

A report released in late 2017 showed that at least 38 percent of Interior Department employees reported facing harassment or discrimination at the workplace. As a result, the Interior Secretary announced a zero tolerance policy regarding this type of behavior by agency staff. The mandate is expected to face its first test with the admission of inappropriate behavior by a top-ranking official at the National Park Service.
