What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Why?

by Jody
(United States)

I have been working for this company for 7 years. I have been harassed by women. I have been sexually harassed by the men. I was sexually propositioned by supervisors by coworkers; one even touched me inappropriately. I reported it and nothing ever happened. I never get a proper raise. I'm not allowed to wear skirts but everyone else can. My desk was vandalized, my rings stolen, my therapeutic chair… should I go on?

But the way it works is you have to be a brown noser. You can't be a beautiful woman… oh let me rephrase that; you can't be single and be smart and beautiful cause you will be talked about. People will make you feel like shit and you always have to watch your back. I'm 47 years old. I stay at this job cause I love it but since I've been working here I have been diagnosed with Croehns, manic depression and now tendinitis/carpel tunnel. Do I need to say more? I have all these incidents documented but you just need to know it hurts truly bad to be bullied… Thank you for listening.

Sorry to hear of your dilemma and possibly work related health issues. Sometimes fighting the good fight is not always worth it and most often the victim walks away with the most scars.

I guess when working in such an environment you have to choose and sometimes you just have to make a decision and choose what is BEST for you even if it means moving on or changing departments etc.

I hope all the best for you.
