    HMM be careful recording someone without permission. You may be looking at legal trouble. I was a union VP for 5 years and I can tell you some simple tricks of the trade to help yo. #1 ask to record, this is a deterrent , #2 pull out a note book.

    Educate yourself in the law about sexual harrasmant and other. Other takes in everything else. Speaking from experience, they leave you alone when they know you are looking into legal action, they sadly move on to a safer victim .Follow the guideline

    Why leave, stand up for your rights. These laws work if you use them. I have been involved with this type of situations and got much done, by knowing the laws. If you step out there many times others will join in. One person can start a big change.

    Now you are on the right track. You are correct. Why people get away with this is only because people do not stand up for themselves, and use the law given to us to correct this unjust behavior. It just takes one person to step out there.

    Yes, this creates a hostile work environment. In America there are laws against this, but few feel comfortable using it. As a union VP for 5 years, I have seen how well it works , especually if you know it and how it works.

    Sometimes that makes it worse. Involve those who are responsible for your healthy learning environment. Documentation is the ultimate key to getting something done. Names, times, dates, people who heard it.

    A paper trail is always effective, showing you made effort and in good faith tried to handle it at the lowest level possible. Looks good in court as well as at the labor board.

    Maybe a copy of the laws that protect you from this would be good!

    Winning unemployment isn't hard if you keep good records, names act. I helped my son on an appeal, which his dismissal violated federal law. We won! On a second note, why leave hold them to the laws.. Once they are in the light there is no turning.

    Reaaly, we have rights, I am one who stands up for them. They can continue to do this illegal work pratices as long as nobody does anything. By not doing anything we enable them to continue. Our silence is their best kept secret!

    Video taping could get you in legal trouble without permission. This goes far beyond personal feeling, it's the law. So many worry about retaliation, however once you involve officials, they are under the watchful eye, and usually lay low.

    I believe in self consciousness,if you have an abusive boss and you still want to hold on to your job? Then the only way is to ignore him or her.Behaving ignorant about his or her attitude will render him or her useless,because you do not give an eye

    Sometimes it is best to take it outside the place it occurs. HR responds well when you quote the law to your right to a non hostile learning environment .

    I so agree. In fact they usually are afraid of you after you file affical complaints. From my experiences, they usually move on to other people. Sad but true. You are the last person they will fire!
