Senator Daines Demands Sexual Harassment in National Parks be Stopped

Senator Steve Daines congratulated Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke who is working on a plan to fight harassment and discrimination throughout the National Park Service.

“Our National Parks must be a safe place to work for all employees – free of harassment,” Daines stated. “I have always said culture starts at the top, and I am glad Secretary Zinke is attacking this issue head-on. I will remain vigilant in our oversight on this issue toward ending harassment and ensuring that employees can come forward free of retaliation.”

Daines who chaired the U.S. Committee on Energy and Natural Resources’ Subcommittee on National Parks was happy to hear things are changing in the National Parks workplace. Sexual harassment should not be happening, and Daines called for more action by the Department of the Interior. Managers are being told to address and resolve any issues involving harassment and discrimination.

38.7% of employees are saying they have experienced some form of harassment and even assault. That came to light after a recent work environment survey by the National Park Service.
