Workplace Bullying and Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy

Action speaks louder than words. Repeated action witness the intent. The perception of the accuser/ victim matters most. Thus, do not make excuses for the abuser/the accused at workplace. Either workplace bullying or sexual harassment is rarely a one-time thing.

 

Every employer must send a clear message that sexual misconduct and sexual harassment are never acceptable and the government should get involved by legalizing the punishment for the sexual abuser at the workplace so as to prevent more troubles and tragedies on earth. Related policies should be implemented ASAP.  

 

“You hear from people that they didn’t intend to offend anyone, were only joking, and when they put their arm around someone, it wasn’t meant to be sexual. Employees have the right not to be touched at work, or addressed in a diminutive way or hear jokes about the tightness of their clothing, People put way too much emphasis on intent rather than perception” says David Lewis, CEO of HR consultancy Operations­Inc.

 

Much like workplace bullying, sexual harassment absolutely affects an individual’s work performance and meanwhile creates an intimidating or abusive work environment for the employees. Who should take responsibility to tackle sexual misconduct and workplace bullying at workplace? I suppose the governments should set a new law to demand every company to set up a routine procedure to prevent something like this with questionnaires or something. 

 

It’s a commonplace thing that a supervisor or anyone who is in a higher position at the workplace asks a female subordinate to socialize during off-duty hours has indicated he or she is not interested. It’s common that a newcomer finds herself/himself the pressure to socialize with their supervisor or even colleagues after working hours. 

 

Some company owners try not to dismiss a key employee for the sake of workplace bullying or sexual harassment. However, Sanford Rose Associates’ John Malloy says that after he fired an abusive employee at the factory he once owned, “there were no issues for several years.”

 

How to report sexual harassment at work? Who will tackle the affair? What will be the punishment for the abuser, verbal warning or what?

The accused might seek revenge. Thus, the best solution may be for the accused and the accuser to work from home or get paid leave.

Common signs of Abusers 

Abusers are good at turning things around and they are adept at masking their vicious intent and attitude with smiles or pretentious favors. According to the research, they  “capture” victims who are easygoing or approachable in character. They play mind games with an attempt to have psychological and emotional control over the abused. 

 

Generally, the abusers will deny their abusive behaviors and will never own up to her behavior nor can they acknowledge their faults and sins unless there is undeniable evidence presented. Many abusers are talented compulsive liars. Typically, the abusers are good at forming an “alliance” with a group or within an organization so as to validate their self-interest, power and influence.

There’s a strong link between imperfection, unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, we can only witness unconditional love in the hard times. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake sabotages our immune system and 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” It’s worth noting that muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that reduced muscle mass is associated with hyperglycemia. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness Be aware of the power of tenderness, humility and subconscious mind. Generally, negative emotions root in the inability to forgive, vanity or pride. People suffer from suppressed anger. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace nor unconditional love. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Trauma is highly linked to chronic fatigue and chronic illness.
