Harassment in the Workplace
I recently contributed to a feature article, by Nicki Notaro, in the Sunday Business Post. The topic an uncomfortable one, harassment in the workplace, but one that must be spoken about, addressed and dealt with. Unfortunately, many people think that workplace harassment may be a bygone tale of yesteryear, of a workplace that no longer exists. This is simply not true and the facts are stark. Workplace harassment is rampant in Ireland and it is destroying the lives of those who are affected by it. The perpetrators of workplace harassment, be it sexual, physical, psychological or emotional are nothing short of cowards who need to be held accountable for their actions.
If you, or somebody that you know, is or has been, harassed in the workplace please get help. Getting help and standing up for yourself is hard, isolating, difficult and exceptionally trying but it is something that you must do.
