Ernst & Young Partner Files Sexual Harassment Claim Against Company

April 19th, 2018

Ernst & Young Partner Files Sexual Harassment Claim Against CompanyA groping incident in 2015 prompted a partner with Ernst & Young to file a sexual harassment claim against the company. The incident occurred at a company event in Orlando, Florida when a male colleague groped the partner and made crude remarks to her. Two other male partners stood by and failed to intervene. She immediately reported the groping incident to the Global Diversity and Inclusiveness Officer, but the incident was not recorded, and the perpetrator received no repercussions. Currently, the perpetrator is on administrative leave until the investigation concludes. Ernst & Young claim that they stand against any type of discrimination or harassment that affects their employees.

Although enduring sexual harassment at the workplace is bad enough, it is just as, if not more, upsetting when the toxic behavior is not recorded, and the perpetrator is not penalized or reprimanded. The victim feels no support from her employer and receives no justice, which may contribute to a decrease in morale and productivity for the abused employee. Victims may experience mental and emotional trauma after this type of incident.
