Transcript Pago 5 Community News HUD sexual harassment common, report alleges WASHINGTON (UPI) — Female workers in the Department of Housing and Urban Development face widespread sexual harassment by their superiors, according to an unofficial survey released Friday. The survey found in many cases "the approach is head-on, and threats of reprisal for failure to 'put out' is tbe preferred supervisory technique." Many of tbe women submitted to their superior's sexual demands in exchange for job advancement, a report on the survey said. The poll was conducted by Al Ripskis, a HUD official and one of Its most persistent internal critics. Ripskis published his findings in "Impact," his private newsletter. Rep. James Hanley, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Civil Service Committee, announced Friday his investigations subcommittee would conduct an investigation toto Ripskis' findings. Ripskis said he received 63 written responses and 103 telephoned responses to his questionnaire into sexual harassment at HUD. Ripskis said his survey found nearly U percent of the solicitations came from women seeking lesbian relationships with a co-worker. The survey, be sakl, "turned up 63 women respondents who have been subjected to coercion or enticement by their boss or by a fellow employee." "Typically the greatest target of pressure for sexual submission" is lower-paid female workers, he said, "whose immediate male boss indirectly (but not necessarily in a subtle manner) promises her quickened career advancement in exchange for going to bed with him." Of those women who responded to the survey, be said, three out of 10 "give in or cooperate." "Of those who cooperate, 80 percent say making love with tbe boss paid off," he said. Of those who resisted the advances of their bosses, he found, 93 percent reported they have been frozen in their job level or have been given sharply reduced performance ratings "as a result of not shacking up with tbe boss." "Many — some SO percent — reported that they began getting crummy assignments and dirty work to perform," after they spurned sexual advances. "The men were persistent," Ripskis said. "In 37 percent of tbe -eases the coercion was of a continuous nature, or was repeated several times in 18 percent of the cases." He said "bosses farther up the supervisory hierarchy were responsible for some 25 percent of the sexual harassment and were generally seen as constituting really 'heavy' pressure, because of die impressive power they hold."
