The public service commission in Madison, Wisconsin, said on Monday that it will no longer tolerate harassment of women by the men in its ranks.
The statement was issued after a commission employee who was involved in a sexual harassment case was fired and another employee accused of making a sexual advance to another woman was fired after an internal investigation, WiscNash reported.
The statement came in response to an email that was sent to members of the public, including women, asking for their support to ensure a swift resolution of the matter.
“The commission has adopted a ‘no holds barred’ policy for sexual harassment cases,” the statement said.
“No complaints of sexual harassment will be brought to the commission, and there will be no further disciplinary action.”
It was not immediately clear why the commission would no longer be supportive of sexual misconduct allegations against employees.
The announcement comes just weeks after the commission launched a new, more powerful system for handling sexual harassment complaints.
The commission said in its statement that the new system will “ensure that allegations are handled swiftly and effectively.”
The statement also said that the public service agency will review its policies and procedures in order to make them “more appropriate for the age of digital communications and social media.”
