A poll from 2017 revealed that 31% of people in the United States have been sexually harassed in the workplace. Further, a comprehensive study of workplace harassment in the United States released by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission concluded that between 25% and 85% of women reported having experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. The State of Delaware has pending legislation with purpose of combating sexual harassment in the workplace as well as making employers responsible for the sexual harassment of an employee.
