Halloween, Masks Don’t Cover Harassment

With Halloween coming up on Wednesday, we would like to remind everyone that nothing ruins a good costume like someone using it as an “excuse” to bother, harass, or humiliate others on Halloween.

A costume, like any other article of clothingis not an invitation to be harassed – even when that costume represents something you find “unacceptable” on the other 364 days of the year. It’s not an invitation to say or do something to a person what one would not otherwise do. Too often, fear of unwanted or aggressive behavior from others holds people back from enjoying themselves, especially once they know how awful being harassed can make you feel.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is seeing a moderate increase in sexual harassment complaints, less than one year after the birth of the #MeToo movement. The good news is that, in general, the number of total discrimination and harassment claims has dropped.

The, Legal, History Of Halloween

You may not have known that Halloween has a unique place in U.S. employment law history. Below are a few cases.

As these cases show, Halloween is no excuse for harassment.

From our family to yours, Happy Halloween!
Have fun and be safe.
