excerpt from my article

Numerous companies have had to handle sexual harassment complaints. The EEOC handles five thousand cases annually, and jury awards have been topping $500,000 per incident including punitive damages.

Mitsubishi Motors, a company with more than forty thousand employees, was fined $34 million by the EEOC in a class action suit brought by 350 female employees. Small companies are equally vulnerable: at a small business, a male employee anonymously sent flowers several times to a female employee. The female employee complained to the owner that she felt unsafe, and the owner wisely figured out how to put an end to the flower deliveries.
