Sexual Harassment

Reporting Sexual Harassment at Work

CWFL professional staff can help you with coping skills, create assertive scripts, and improved self-care in high-intensity relationships.

There may be rare situations in which the conduct of another person meets the established criteria for harassment at work. The USC Office of Equity and Diversity (OED) is available to help you with fact-finding, policy clarification, and discussion of your options.

You may contact the Office of Equity and Diversity at 213-740-5086.
