Professor Paul McGreal and Joe Murphy have pointed out that even though New York City has enacted what has been described as “the nation’s furthest-reaching anti-sexual harassment laws,” it is questionable how serious an effort this really is. In other compliance areas, where companies want to prevent misconduct, there is much more that is expected of them. Only in the area of harassment are they simply asked to do paper and preaching, tell people to call HR, investigate if anyone does call, and not much more.

We may be saying “me too,” but if we were serious about it we would be doing much more.
