Additionally: If you reasonably believe that you are a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, you'll likely have a stronger legal case if you first follow your employer's anti-harassment procedures to the letter (if they exist) and then take legal action if following the procedures doesn't stop the harassment.
Generally, it's any behavior that is unwelcome, offensive, unsolicited or objectionable. Bullying is commonly associated with the playground and sometimes the Internet among older youths.
Generally, there are two types of unwelcome sexual behaviors in the workplace that are unlawful.
One type is referred to as quid pro quo sexual harassment and the other is referred to as hostile-environment sexual harassment, meaning that it creates a hostile work environment.
For example, only one or two incidents of unwelcome sexual conduct, such as a couple of flirtations or innuendoes, might not constitute actionable sexual harassment.
Incidents typically must be so pervasive or severe, that they detrimentally alter the victim's conditions of employment.
Mobbing, in the context of human beings, means bullying of an individual by a group, in any context, such as a family, peer group, school, workplace, neighborhood, community, or online.It can involve spreading rumors, or hurtful gossip or innuendo about a coworker.In face-to-face confrontations, it may include yelling, name-calling, mocking, insulting or ridicule.In his view, humans are subject to similar innate impulses but capable of bringing them under rational control.Leymann noted that one of the possible side-effects of mobbing is post-traumatic stress disorder and is frequently misdiagnosed.
