Karin blogs about workplace flexibility for sexual assault survivors

April 30, 2010

Associate Clinical Professor Marcy Karin, director of the Work-Life Policy Unit in the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law's Civil Justice Clinic, and Robin Runge of the University of North Dakota were featured guest bloggers on the Sloan Work and Family Research Network on April 24.

In a post on the Work and Family Blog, entitled "Supporting Survivors of Sexual Assault with Workplace Flexibility," Karin and Runge commented that "Sexual assault survivors should not be further victimized by workplace structures that have failed to recognize how they can support survivors." The blog was posted during Sexual Assault Awareness Month "to educate employees and employers about the benefits of workplace flexibility in providing support, security, and help to employees who are survivors of sexual assault."
