Harrassment In The Work Place
Q: let's keep our fingers crossed. If you can keep your mouth shut and
not warn him off ahead of time, where he would have the chance to gather
enough ammunition to disarm this weapon, you will effectively take his
testicles in your hands and squeeeeeze them.
How would you like to be seated across from a manager, trying to explain
what, exactly, you meant by, "I used to come to work drunk", or whether or
not you had made a comment about oral sex with fat women? About the only
answer possible is, "I was just joking", which, fabulously enough is NOT
ALLOWED AS AN EXCUSE under the EEOC rules!
Isn't that cool? He can either hang himself or hang himsel
A: I have zero experience with workplace harrassment procedings, and I ask the following questions strictly out of curiousity. What happens if the offending guy and his buddies just lie and say he never said those things? Does the complaining guy require witnesses to what the guy said? What happens if the offending guy is found to be guilty of the complaints against him; does he automatically get fired, or does he just have to attend senstivity training sessions? In your experience, if the offending guy comes back to work after his reprimand, does he harbor even greater ill-will to the person who complained about him? Do the offending guy's friends also become more obnoxious to the complainer? Do those friends become uncooperative to the complainer with regard to their having to work together? If it is determined that the no case was made against the offending guy, then do the offending guy and his buddies take strength from this and become even more obnoxious? We have all read stories about harrassment complaints in city police and fire departments, and as I said, I am just curious about how these situations play themselves out in the workplace that is not in the public eye.
