The innumerable benefits of participating in online sexual harassment classes cannot be overemphasized. The fact that it saves you from public embarrassment is enough to make you enroll for one of these classes. Well, if you are yet convinced of the importance of these classes, let us share with you a very recent drama that occurred recently.

It's a story of an executive director who resigned from his hallowed position due to alleged sexual harassment scandal.

Jay Parmley, the executive director of the ruling party of the United States, got himself into a cluster of controversies as he was accused of sexually harassing an employee. Not only that, he went ahead to make a cover up for the whole scandal by secretly bribing the employee in order to sweep the whole scandal under the carpet.

This issue sniffed into limelight penultimate Friday within the party through internal party emails. The party also plans to take up the issue at Democratic conventions that are to be held in the county. The scandal should not have brought uproar within the party if not for the fact that it seems to be an impediment to the success of the party's present mission and agenda.

 This issue came up at the wake of the party's preparation and mobilization to bring President Barack Obama back to the White House coupled with the 2012 convention in Charlotte. Not only that, this is a time when the party is struggling to maintain the Governor's Mansion and also win a proposed bid to reaffirm the ban of same-sex marriage in the state. Indeed, this allegation against the executive director of this powerful party came in the wrong time.

Though, Parmley denied harassing his employee and also seek not to be a distraction to the party's agenda, so he decided to resign. Parmley leaving the party at this moment did little to making the issue clear to the party members. The party chairman did not also help the matter; he failed to address the bribery and nondisclosure agreement that Parmley had with his former employee when he complained of being sexually harassed. The former employee was fired, and nothing came out of the issue.

From various reactions that were observed from party executives and loyalties, people think Parmley did the right thing by resigning from being the executive director of the Party. Some also believe that there are more party members and executive that are involved in this shameful act. They opine that these people should also toll the path of Jay Parmley.

This is just one of the various cases of sexual harassment, which should not have occurred if sexual harassment classes were attended by the parties involved. In this case, the employee who was sexually harassed has been fired since November and the other party involved, the executive director of the party also resigned.

Ignorance of sexual harassment prevention tips has caused them their jobs. One thing that surprises people, taking sexual harassment classes is how easy the classes are to attend to. These classes are done at very flexible periods. You have the opportunity of choosing the best time for yourself. The fact that you are a party chairman, or a party executive, does not mean you can’t schedule a class for yourself; regardless of how tight your schedule may be. As the saying goes, ’what you are ignorant of will surely be your master’.

Why don’t you schedule an online sexual harassment class for yourself and your employees? This will save you a lot of money and frustration. A report of the above issue has been filed to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and if Parmley is found guilty of these allegations, he would have to pay through his nose to the employee irrespective of his resignation from the party.
