Approximately 15,000 sexual harassment cases are brought to the Equal Opportunities Commission (EEOC) each year. The number of sexual harassment complaints filed by men has more than tripled in recent years. At this moment 11% of claims involve men filing against female supervisors.

A study on five hundred respondents and ninety companies found the following:

  • Sexual Harassment is common in the Workplace
  • 54% (272) had experienced forms of workplace sexual harassment
  • 27% of two hundred and seventy respondents experienced harassment by a collegue, while 17% were harassed by their superior
  • 79% of the victims were women, 21% were men
  • 12% had received threats of termination if they did not comply with the demands of the sexual harassers

both men and women are more likely to have harassed by the opposite sex, although some have experienced harassment from the same sex.
