The National Park Services show concerns for workplace harassment

Being subjected to unfair treatment at the workplace can have a devastating impact on a person's life. Although there are laws and regulations in place to protect individuals from workplace harassment, unfortunately, it continues to be a concern for individuals in California who work in a variety of professions. A recent report suggests that nearly 40 percent of individuals employed with the National Park Services have experienced some form of harassment or discrimination while on the job.

Harassment can come in many forms, but according to the report, the most common types that employees have experienced have either been sexual or gender-based. Upon being questioned about this area of concern, many admitted a lack of trust in the agency's ability to handle such issues. This has apparently led up to 75 percent of those affected by harassment to choose not to file a complaint, many of which reportedly believed that it would not do any good.

Gender-based harassment may unfortunately be present in a multitude of professions. However, the report suggests that those who work within this particular field may be subjected to an increased level of stereotyping. Suffering such unfair and unjust treatment can be devastating, and it may lead some to search for work in a different field entirely, despite their wishes.

Those subjected to workplace harassment of any kind may wish to protect themselves from unnecessary suffering, but the process can be intimidating. When facing a similar circumstance, one could consult an experienced attorney for advice on available options for legal recourse. An attorney in California can address the situation and assist a client in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible through the necessary outlets.
