You have begun to explore the impact of social class, ethnicity, and gender on identity and the functions of roles in social organization. In addition, you will consider family life, work, violence, sexuality, and the possibilities for social change. In this discussion, you will explore sexual harassment concerns in the workplace for both men and women.

Review the case story of twenty-five-year-old Lois Jenson, who endured sexual harassment in the iron mines of Minnesota and later filed and won the first class-action sexual harassment lawsuit, Jenson v. Eveleth Mines. You can review the story in internet.

In your exploration of these concepts, respond to the following:

  • Reflect on the case study of Jenson. What is your opinion of the case? What do you agree with, and on what do you differ?
  • Research and explain three types of sexual harassment.
  • Analyze and explain whether the aspect of sex role spillover creates stereotyping and a sexualized atmosphere.
  • Review and analyze the attached sample sexual harassment policy. Identify specific elements that are designed to protect individuals and suggest additional items for consideration. Support your reasoning with references.

Sample Sexual Harassment Policy

Agency X’s position is that all employees be responsible for ensuring that the workplace is free

from sexual harassment.

Agency X strongly disapproves of offensive or inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace and

requires that all employees avoid any action or conduct that could be viewed as sexual

harassment, including but not limited to:

• Unwelcome sexual advances

• Requests for sexual acts or favors

• Other verbal or physical conduct of a harassing nature that has sexual overtones

Any employee who has a complaint of sexual harassment at work by anyone, including

supervisors, coworkers, or visitors, must bring the problem to the attention of his or her immediate

supervisor or the executive director. If the complaint involves someone in the employee’s direct

chain of command, then the employee may go to another supervisor, the executive director, or

the chairperson of the personnel committee.

All complaints will be promptly investigated in a discreet manner that ensures privacy and
complete confidentiality of both charging and accusing parties.

Agency X will retain confidential documentation of all allegations in investigations and will take
appropriate corrective actions, including disciplinary measures, when justified to remedy all
violations of this policy.
