Sexual Harassment Law and You

In the past year anti-harassment policies have become more common at conventions as communities have begun to discuss how harassment can deter guests and ruin the convention experience. But how do these privately adopted policies mesh with America’s public anti-harassment laws? Ken White, attorney and legal blogger, will outline how American anti-harassment laws work, how convention policies supplement them, and how best practices can make them more effective.

Some resources Ken has provided:

A really excellent resource on the history of anti-harassment policies in the skeptic, author, sci-fi and fantasy, and open-source communities:  http://adainitiative.org/2013/08/conference-anti-harassment-campaigns-do-work-three-existence-proofs-from-sff-atheismskepticism-and-open-source/

Equal Employment Opportunity Harassment Resources:http://www1.eeoc.gov/eeoc/publications/

Ken’s post with resources, and with links to posts in which he’s discussed why talking about harassment causes such disproportionate anger and more harassment.  http://www.popehat.com/2014/02/01/todays-talk-on-convention-anti-harassment-policies-at-ftbcon/
