Local Chamber of Commerce Hosts Seminar on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Allegations of sexual harassment from victims across the country sparked local leaders to hold a workshop around the issue in Montgomery County.

The workshop, sponsored by the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce and Launch Workplaces, focused on identifying and preventing harassment in the workplace.

“Kicking off the new year, we want to make sure that people are aware and to answer any questions that people may have,” Laura Rowles, director of events and marketing for the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce, said.

According to Meredith Campbell, an employment attorney and one of the guest speakers for the event, sexual harassment is defined as a tangible action, either verbal, written, or physical conduct that is sexual in nature that creates a hostile environment.
