Sexual harassment has been a problem ever since, and women (who are the principal victims) have put up with it because there has been no easy escape. The fear of retaliation especially in the low-security jobs and the absence internal complaint procedure has been contributing to victims putting up with the problem (Heather, Vanessa, and Deborah 6). The fear of misunderstanding and getting dirty reputations also has contributed to the same. However, the increasing number of women in the workplaces notifies the public of such issues. If this happens, reputedly and the person hates then one should do the following: Sexual harassment has been a problem ever since, and women (who are the principal victims) have put up with it because there has been no easy escape.

The fear of retaliation especially in the low-security jobs and the absence internal complaint procedure has been contributing to victims putting up with the problem (Heather, Vanessa, and Deborah 6). The fear of misunderstanding and getting dirty reputations also has contributed to the same. However, the increasing number of women in the workplaces notifies the public of such issues.

If this happens, reputedly and the person hates then one should do the following: 1) One should speak immediately at the time of happening; show no attention. If it is a matter of touching, then one should express his or her displeasure when talking. A person should say this firmly without smiling. One should be clear in showing the dislike of the behavior and that it should not happen again. 2) Keep a record of what is happening in a diary or book, kept safely so that no one can reach it to add or subtract information.

The victim should write the date, time, place, and happenings. Quote down all that said, and keep all materials that one could have received e. g. letters, cards, emails, SMS (Short Message Services), and notes. 3) One should also talk to a trusted co-worker whom about the issue, who will keep watch. Find out if the same person has ever harassed anyone else or if someone else has ever left the job because of the same behavior.

One should have a witness at least in one incidence or more of the harassment. 4) If the harassment does not stop after several verbal warnings, have a written warning and keep a copy of the same (Raver, and Michele 4). In this case, the use of a carbon paper and keeping a duplicate copy help in keeping records for evidence. Communicate all your feelings explicitly in the warning note. One should talk about the incidences that happened and that one did not like, talk of the comments or compliments made that cause discomfort.

Explain your expectations and tell the harasser that your relationship should be purely professional.
