Harassment in the Workplace
We Don't Have a Problem. Some people like to think that there is no harassment in their workplace because no one has ever complained about it. But just because no one has brought it forward doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The fact is that there are very few workplaces without some form of harassment or bullying and those suffering from this form of abuse may have a number of reasons why they do not want to bring this matter forward. This includes being afraid of retaliation, embarrassment or even losing their job. Most importantly they may feel that they won't be believed, especially if the harassment is being done by their boss or supervisor. The fact of the matter is that harassment exists and every employer should have a proactive plan to deal with this issue.
