Alternate Title: Appendix F: Sexual Harassment Assessment, Department of Defense Annual Report on Sexual Assault in the Military: Fiscal Year 2019
From the Document: "Across the Department of Defense (DOD), dedicated Service members and civilian employees work tirelessly each day to ensure mission accomplishment and success in our daily operations as we endeavor to safeguard our nation and achieve our national defense objectives. Our people are at the core of the National Defense Strategy and ensuring their wellbeing remains of utmost importance to the Department. Behaviors that jeopardize the welfare of any member of the Total Force will not be tolerated, condoned, or ignored. Sexual harassment is one such problematic behavior which has no place in DOD. Sexually harassing behavior violates the responsibility of Service members and DOD civilian employees to treat each other with dignity and respect. Incidents of sexual harassment threaten force readiness and have the potential to undermine critical cohesion and trust among members of the Total Force. [...] This appendix reports on complaints of sexual harassment received in Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19), which covers the period from October 1, 2018, to September 30, 2019. The topline summary of 1,021 formal sexual harassment complaints reported by the Military Services in FY19 increased 10 percent from FY18."
