Solving This Together: Expanding the Principles of Yichud to Prevent Workplace Sexual Harassment and Abuse

The authors propose a rethinking and expansion of the traditional concept in Jewish law of yichud, suggesting ways that setting norms in which two adults meet alone in workplace contexts that are “observable and interruptible” can protect people of all genders and at all levels of power, and prevent the conditions under which sexual harassment and abuse are too easily fostered.
