Park Service probe reveals how fear prevents harassment reports

If you are a federal worker in Texas or Georgia who regularly reads this blog, you know our focus is on upholding worker rights as guaranteed by law. Those rights include the right to be free from a broad range of harassment, including sexual harassment. But, as we noted in one of our posts in June, it can be hard to leverage that protection if the general culture in an agency ignores the issues.

General gender bias has very targeted effect unless countered

One of the keystone bits of education every child in Texas, Georgia, Washington, D.C., or anywhere else in the U.S. receives is that the government has three branches – Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Regardless of which branch you work in, the laws covering employment rights are the same. Ideally, those laws make fighting to protect employees against discrimination unnecessary. In reality, such fights are common.

Considering the size of the federal government, it's fair to ask whether there is any such thing as a small agency or division. It's a rhetorical question. As we noted in our last post on this federal employees' law blog, there is a broad array of programs covering different segments of the government workforce just to deal with compensation when injuries or illness on the job occur.

No one likes to be pigeonholed. This may be particularly true of residents of Texas. Being stuck in a category may leave you feeling stripped of your individuality or reduced to a number. Unfortunately, when it comes to working for an organization as complicated as the federal government, some regimentation becomes necessary.
