    I know from my daughter working in HR, companies take this stuff very seriously. If there are whispers going around a company, somebody better be prepared to come forward or it can be a career ending offense for slandering a coworker. There are rules and boundaries here with sexual harassment and assault.

    I read that the Texas Capitol sexual harassment reporting protocol refers to an oversight body that no longer exists... Not much hope of filing a complaint there!

    this shouldn't be happening.
    Bullshit! Why is it that women saying some men are gropers or flashers or harassers is always suspect?

    you should never gossip with other employees about the misconduct of others.

    if you have a problem with said conduct, take it to your HR dept. otherwise, shut up.
    Easy for a man to say!

    Um, as a female you do realize why women haven't historically reported such behavior, right?

    Well the way Congress deals with sexual harassment claims are basically a joke.

    One former staffer who said she was sexually harassed by a colleague years ago told POLITICO she didn’t know where to turn at the time. She’d never heard of the Office of Compliance, or OOC, the entity that exists to handle harassment complaints and enforce workplace protection laws for the legislative branch. When she called a congressional committee that deals with administrative issues to inquire about filing a complaint, she said, she was turned away without any guidance.

    As it stands now, after an incident but before filing a complaint, victims are required to go through 30 days of “counseling” with an OOC employee. Following that process, they have 15 days to decide whether they want to pursue the next step: 30 days of mandated “mediation.” After mediation, victims must wait another 30 days to file a complaint. The OOC allows anyone filing a complaint to ask to shorten the counseling period and doesn’t require them to be in the same room as the accused during mediation, but Speier put little stock in those measures. Can you imagine a victim who’s been sexually harassed who attempts to file a complaint and then is told they’ve got to go through three months of biting their tongue and continuing to work in that kind of environment?” she asked. “You’ve just been sexually harassed and you’re told you have to be ‘counseled’ for 30 days. Are you kidding me?”

    Les Alderman, an attorney who has represented multiple congressional employees in harassment and discrimination cases, said that OOC officials “do their best to do exactly what the law says they should.” But he warned that the law that created the office “has major downfalls.”For one, Alderman said, the 30-day counseling period a harassment victim must undergo before pursuing a complaint is confidential.

    Alexis Ronickher, an employment rights lawyer at Katz, Marshall & Banks who’s worked with sexual harassment victims in congressional offices, said that means victims can be sanctioned and their cases jeopardized if they say publicly that they’re filing a complaint against a lawmaker or fellow staffer.
