Pennsylvania Commission for Women Statement on the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Sexual Harassment Investigation

first_img Statement Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Commission for Women issued the following statement on the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s investigation determining that PPA Executive Director Vince Fenerty sexually harassed a female employee:“The conduct by Vince Fenerty as revealed by an internal investigation by the Philadelphia Parking Authority this week is unacceptable and reprehensible. There should be absolutely no tolerance of sexual harassment of any kind in any Pennsylvania workplace.“Sexual harassment not only has a detrimental impact personally on the women who are subject to it, but also on our broader economy. It impedes a woman’s job performance and, therefore, impacts her ability to grow and advance professionally. This type of behavior devalues women and their contributions to the workforce.“The Pennsylvania Commission for Women encourages PPA’s board to take these actions very seriously and impose disciplinary action that appropriately matches the conduct.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Pennsylvania Commission for Women Statement on the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Sexual Harassment Investigation September 23, 2016center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
