How can someone know without a shadow of a doubt whether they are being harassed at work or not? NoBullying releases today the guide to the top signs someone is harassed at work.
In fact harassment covers a large area that one might not be aware of. While sexual harassment is one aspect of harassment, so is bullying. The guide lists all signs of harassments as well the different types of harassment one might be facing at work. For example, sexual harassment in the workplace is a widespread epidemic among both men and women. For years women were the target of men’s unwanted gestures and touches, in the workplace.
Now it seems that men are also the victims at their workplace as well. They too are being targeted, touched and forced to perform sexually, if they want to keep their job. This type of harassment is illegal and unfair. No one should have to submit to sexual gratification of another person, just for the privilege of working. Many companies have enforced strict workplace policies, which prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. Employees and others who are victims of such harassment can report it safely to the proper departmental heads.
Over the years, laws have been passed to protect both women and men from such advances. Now it seems that another type of harassment is spreading in the workplace, just as quickly. It is bullying in the workplace. Bullying is considered harassment.
Signs of being harassed at work include being singled out at worked, even though the employee’s work is beyond average. Bosses who like to show their control usually find someone they consider to be weak, and prey on their emotions. They make a spectacle out them in front of everyone. Another sign is being yelled at, called unpleasant names, and constantly criticized and humiliated in front of crowds of people. Another form of harassment is isolation, such as not being invited to meetings, lunches or activities held outside of work.
Another famous sign of employee harassment at work is that the employee’s work is always in question or sabotaged by last minute changes or instant rule changes, this is clearly harassment. All companies should send out a memo to all employees about recent or upcoming changes. Everyone should know about trainings, meetings and workshops in advance, not the day of or the day after.
