An uncomfortable working environment is extremely difficult to deal with. Many of us spend a large majority of our time at work and when there is harassment of any kind in the workplace, it can have an adverse affect on one’s entire life. No one should have to feel threatened by coworkers, supervisors or even customers.
Harassment can include unwelcome visual, verbal or physical conduct that affects one’s working conditions or creates a hostile working environment. Some examples of harassment include:
- Sexual harassment
- Racial slurs and name calling
- Offensive jokes
- Displaying offensive items or photos
- Bullying behaviors
- Acts of intimidation
