Violence at Work
Joining a Trade Union. Sexual Harassment at Work. A rift between a colleague and I had been brewing for a few weeks, I have tried to talk to the 3rd party but he flat refused to engage in conversation. As the situation started to affect the business and customers I brought it to the managers attention. I believe the manager spoke to the 3rd party in question but unsure what was said and or agreed, this was 5 days ago. Today an issue arose, whilst trying to sort it out with two of other colleagues he started singing and making silly immature comments about the situation.
Once the problem had been rectified I asked a colleague what was all that about, him singing stupid things n that? Mi77er - Nov PM. I had two instances where I was in a similar situation. One situation happened in late March of and it was based on a coworker who went up to me and started yelling at me and getting in my face, literally, he almost kissed me, is how close he was.
He cussed me out for no reason since I have not had problems with him. I quit because I felt like my self being was in danger. He recently as of today meant a gesture as if he was going to hit me as I moved out of the way for him to walk by since we were both walking towards each other.
