Sexual Harassment, Rape... lawsuits... anguish... As leaders/managers we have to be knowledgeable on how to avoid being sexually harassed; or if it's happened to you, how to report it and how to deal with it. Join in and listen as I discuss this topic with Nance Parry who'll share her experiences with us on this crucial topic. ---- Nancy Parry makes a living as a writer, now, but she had a professional acting career for fourteen years. That career ended when she had three sexual harassment lawsuits – she sued her employer (a television network), the actor’s union, and the harasser (a Stage Manager on a popular soap opera) – and won all three suits. It taught her a great deal about the law, where sexual harassment is concerned, as well as – to quote the title – how to avoid, handle and litigate over sexual harassment. But harassment doesn’t only happen in Show Business. Nancy is a woman who experienced sexual harassment in numerous lines of work over several decades, including waitressing, theatre usher, secretarial work, sales, photography, & as a disc jockey, as well as in various other lines. She experienced molestation, rape, and loss of employment for refusing to give in to employer’s carnal demands. The knowledge she gained in her three lawsuits is made available to help others avoid some of what she endured. --- Nance's book, HOW TO AVOID, HANDLE, and LITIGATE OVER SEXUAL HARASSMENT is available on on http://www.booklocker.com/books/4397.html (only $10 - a super great deal)
