  3. I personally will report it to whatever chain of command there is and this will be base on the intensity of it. Some might lead to me punching the face of such a person which for me is a bigger statement. However, I also like to go public like social media professional sites, facebook, twitter. SeeRead more

    See i like to make really loud gestures of my NOs if that private No was dismissed.

    Sexual harassment is violence and responding to it with a loud and public display of your displeasure is the way I go.

  1. Report immediately to relevant authority and keep a paper trail. The law protects you from unlawful termination of work so make sure your contract addresses such cases when joining a new company and if possible ask for their harassment policy.

    Reporting to HR may not always work. You could start by reaching out to a close friend and seeking help from an outside aythoroty like the police or an organisation that specificaly deals with this. Making sure you have some evidence of the harassment is an added advantage, this could be an audio or video recording or a reliable witness who will stand by you and their word. Find out if there’s another person going through the same and do a joint report. It is quite sad that after going through abuse you have to do all this just to protect yourself and your work. However there’s no work or employment that is worth abuse. You are better off without a job than in an abusive environment. With the recent cases of femicide and violence, your lufe could be at risk. The most drastic and safe move would be to up and leave though you’ll have to plan on how you to meet your needs after an abrupt loss of work.

  2. I believe in holding people accountable, whether the HR will help or not. Report the matter and if the matter is shut down. Take legal matters! Fear of the Hr not being on your side is what gives this crooks power. Iโ€™m a firm believer in getting justice at all costs

  4. Iโ€™d like to know why the HR manager cannot do a thing about it? Whag kind of company is it? Even if one is to take it further, they must first make an official report to HR, so there is a record.
