Glassdoor Reviews Open a Window to Sexual Harassment

October 17th, 2018

Philadelphia sexual harassment lawyers discuss Glassdoor reviews of work place climates.Glassdoor has proven itself a great place for job-seekers to learn about an employer’s working conditions, office culture, salary ranges, and more. For many, it is the first place someone looking for a job will turn for insight into a potential employer. With our nation’s current focus on the #MeToo movement, Glassdoor has become a valuable resource for gauging a company’s policies on sexual harassment.

We have heard too many stories of sexual harassment, gender inequality, discrimination, and inappropriate behavior in the work environment, but it can be difficult to assess a company’s policies without hearing from those with firsthand experience. Even if a company has policies in place, it does not necessarily mean that they enforce them.

On Glassdoor.com, it is not uncommon to hear stories that serve as warnings to those considering a job change. Learning about sexual harassment or other injustices from someone who has experienced these things can offer a very real and unsettling look at what goes on in certain companies. The following are a few sobering statistics to consider before you look for your next job:

  • At least 25 percent of women have experienced sexual harassment. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the rate of sexual harassment is as high as 85 percent in some reports.
  • After reporting sexual harassment, 75 percent of victims experience retaliation. Because of this, many victims never report sexual harassment.
  • Between 87 and 94 percent of victims never report sexual harassment. There are many reasons, including fear of retaliation, shame, self-blame, and fear of losing their job.
