GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES ON WORKPLACE HARASSMENT LAW: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 2004 ANNUAL MEETING, ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN LAW SCHOOLS SECTION ON LABOR RELATIONS AND EMPLOYMENT LAW

By Vicki Schultz

Abstract

Our panel is entitled, \u22Global Perspectives on Workplace Harassment Law.\u22 As most of you know, the idea that workplace harassment is a form of discrimination is a concept that was invented by American feminists and civil rights lawyers and inscribed by federal judges into Title VII law. Although the courts first recognized the harm of harassment in the context of race discrimination, it is the concept of sexual harassment that has received the greatest attention, and not only in the United States. Over the past two decades, activism around sexual harassment has sparked developments around the globe, with differing results as each nation has drawn on its own legal and cultural traditions to fashion its own approach to regulating harassment. This panel will discuss developments in the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Australia from an interdisciplinary perspective
