The topic which is going to be discussed by me today is Workplace Molestation Types and how to complain about it in our country. So, first of all, we need to know the complete definition of Workplace Molestation.
Definition of Workplace Molestation/ Harassment:
The word Workplace Molestation is also called from other names as “Mobbing, Workplace Mistreatment and Workplace Abuse are the synonyms for this word. The threatening and belittling unwanted physical contact which includes touching and hugging deliberately at an individual worker is known as Workplace Harassment.
As we come to know about this term and in our country harassment has reached to the highest level and especially in workplace because both genders are working under one roof and daily meet with one another and are having frank relationship so the psychology of all persons is not good at all some professional workers to take it in a negative aspect and start doing unwilling acts which are not fancied by the individuals workers. We, see that young male and females are working together and mostly the environment has become free from such things because 90% people think that its nothing to mingle with other males and sit and eat with them but still some wise people are there who think deeply and according to them these acts seems to be awkward for a girl and as well as for a boy. Every day we see in television, social media and from other sources numbers of the cases are there and are filed in the court against this act but 35% women said that they are said by the managers and other bosses to stay silent in this case so in such a way the cases remain closed and the girl stay silent forever.
