Workshop Examines Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Joelle Piercy, Community Outreach coordinator at Safe+Sound Somerset, will be guest speaker at the Feb. 27 breakfast and workshop on sex harassment in the workplace.


BEDMINSTER, NJ – The Somerset County Business Partnership and The Center for Contemporary Art will host a “Business Builders Breakfast” and workshop focused on sexual harassment in the workplace on Tuesday, Feb. 27 beginning at 8 a.m. at The Center for Contemporary Art, 2020 Burnt Mills Road.

The 90-minute event, “Sexual Harassment & Rules of the Modern Workplace,” tackles the enormity of this issue

The U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) defines workplace sexual harassment as “unwelcome sexual advances or conduct of a sexual nature which unreasonably interferes with the performance of a person's job or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment. Sexual harassment can range from persistent offensive sexual jokes to inappropriate touching to posting offensive material on a bulletin board.”

Denner regularly handles discrimination matters before state and federal administrative agencies in New York and New Jersey. Piercy is the Community Outreach Coordinator at Safe+Sound Somerset, a non-profit organization that empowers survivors of domestic abuse and engages the community to break the cycle of violence.
