While most caregivers are women, a growing number of men have been taking on these roles and have contributed to the overall spike in employee discrimination claims. Experts say a combination of social, economic, and demographic changes — changing gender expectations, longer life expectancies, the increase in stay-at-home fathers, and the recession — have been driving this trend.

How to eliminate workplace harassment
Kansas City Business Journal
Ask human resources professionals, employment attorneys or savvy business owners for advice on keeping a company out of legal trouble when it comes to harassment in the workplace, and they share the same simple advice: Show a little respect.
