Sexual Harassment Archives

Human resources should properly handle sexual harassment claims

Being harassed can make any New York resident feel unsafe. In a best case scenario, the victim would have the ability to get away from the harasser and to a safe place. Unfortunately, that may not always be a viable option, especially if the situation involves sexual harassment taking place at work.

There are many ways to report sexual harassment

There are many reasons that New York workers may feel uncomfortable at work. They may worry that they are not doing their job well or that their boss does not like them. In more serious situations, employees may feel a sense of dread going to work because they face sexual harassment from co-workers or managers.

Insecurity should not give way to sexual harassment

In a best case scenario, workers would have employers and managers who foster encouraging environments. Unfortunately, many New York workers know that is not always the situation that many employees face. Sexual harassment runs rampant in many industries, and these misbehaviors may be carried out by individuals in positions of power.

Facing unwanted sexual advances in the workplace can be uncomfortable at the very least. For many workers, the actions and behavior can be so continuous that it constitutes sexual harassment and causes a disruption to individuals' abilities to do their jobs. Additionally, it can have personal impacts as well as effects on a person's job.

Working in a hostile environment can have many negative effects on employees. In some cases, individuals may face physical and emotional harm, and when workers face sexual harassment, they may even end up leaving their jobs or being fired for refusing to put up with the behaviors. Overall, work environments with these conditions should not be condoned.

When New York residents are asked to think of an annoying co-worker, it is likely that most people do not have to think too hard before a person comes to mind. While most people likely work alongside others with whom they do not particularly see eye to eye, the situation could go far beyond that as well. In some cases, individuals may face sexual harassment from one or more co-workers and feel unsafe on the job.

In other instances, managers may exhibit behaviors or require certain actions by workers that constitute sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment may make men feel weak, unable to complain

Few people, including New York residents, want to consider themselves victims. It may make them feel weak or as if they have been irreparably damaged. As a result, individuals who have endured sexual harassment often prefer to refer to themselves as survivors. However, many men who have experienced such harassment may feel reluctant to refer to themselves at all in relation to the topic.

Fear of retaliation often keeps lid on sexual harassment

Many people have a great need for their jobs. Though the work they do may not be the most ideal, they may rely on their paychecks to meet their needs. Unfortunately, this reliance may make individuals stay in their jobs even if they face mistreatment, or they may fear more mistreatment if they complain about sexual harassment or other misconduct.

Unfortunately, these types of actions can take place in any industry, and many people become victims.
