Sexual harassment in workplace
Imagine a scenario your boss whacking you over your head with his penis naked, then at the same time, lifting your shirt and masturbates on you while holding you down, and ejaculating on you. This is what happed in June 2011, at St. Louis. Due to this, the jury awarded employee Ashley Alford $95million against Aaron Rentals, the national rent to own chain. This is one of the main sexual harassment in history.
In any workplace, either the employees serving the customers, being the president of a certain country, practicing law, hosting a television show, being a professor, running a medical clinic, the fact remains that it is a workplace and that all of us we presume a certain standard when interacting with our fellow co-workers (Antecol and Cobb-Clark, 2003). This topic may not be well defined but it is there. As a student, I imagine how my workplace would be like after graduation. I worked very hard to achieve my degree, schlepping from one interview to another so that I might get a job before graduation. I stepped out into the working place having a degree of uncertainty and trepidation but knowing that if I have been given a chance, I will be able to work very hard and make my dreams come true.
You ensured that you took a job with respect and dignity and been given the time to contribute your energies and time to the employer productivity. Without much thought of the job, you might be expecting there to be jerks and unpleasant personalities in the workplace, but the level of decorum is expected (Fitzgerald, Drasgrow, Hulin, Gelfand and Magley, 1997). With this kind of picture in mind, there is no one who has the guarantee that the situations do not comport with your idea of the workplace you have been dreaming of.
