AGMA condemns all forms of discrimination and harassment. Because of this, we have taken a leading role in encouraging our employers to create and maintain a workplace free from sexual harassment and discrimination. We are committed to holding our employers responsible for ensuring that all our members have a safe and secure environment in which to work, rehearse, and perform.
Should you become the victim of harassment or discrimination, we encourage you to notify AGMA by reporting claims to firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the button below. All reports will go directly to AGMA’s National Executive Director Len Egert as well as to AGMA’s Eastern and Western Counsels and are kept in strict confidence. Reports should include the information contained in the Sexual Harassment Policy (Sexual Harassment Policy – PDF Format). If your case involves criminal allegations, please call 911 immediately and report it to law enforcement.
Any member may report any allegation of discrimination, abuse or harassment. We will keep confidential the identity of any member making a report, and although retaliation may be difficult to prove, and members are frightened about the possibility, the only thing that’s likely to have real success in preventing sexual abuse or harassment is the filing of a complaint with the employer.
AGMA signatory employers are obligated to maintain a work environment free from all forms of discrimination and unlawful harassment, including sexual harassment. A typical no-discrimination policy applies to the working relationships between employees and any others with whom contact is necessary to perform the employer’s business.
For any further questions, please refer to AGMA’s Official Sexual Harassment Policy, which is linked to in the Resources table below.
AGMA has an extensive history of articles - published both here on our website, and in AGMAzine - regarding the Union's stance against and actions to combat Sexual Harassment and Sexual Abuse in the workplace.
