In this episode: Tonya clarifies what constitutes as sexual harassment (as recognized actionable by the law) in personal relationships, workplace and otherwise, what steps to take if you have been a victim of sexual harassment, how to avoid behavior that could be deemed as sexual harassment, your rights as an employee, and things to consider before making complaints or accusations.
With the #MeToo movement being fresh on everyone's mind, this conversation was very eye opening and informative and I highly recommend everyone - not just women- take a listen.
