How do harassment and bullying affect people mentally?

Harassment of any kind and bullying or snubbing anyone is the worst trend that may be present in any office either it is a public office or is the workplace on any corporate sector company. It steals the peace of mind of the employees and they can’t have only one thing i.e. their office work, to focus on. Rather they have to live under the constant threat of facing any contemptuous remark anytime from anywhere and this surely affects his/her working capability. Both of them are totally unbearable at any place and are a brutal and an unethical form of having any hostile attitude or keeping hatred against any particular individual or a group of people who are there to work for you. This wrongful attitude not only causes them a constant mental stress and subject them to mental torture but their families at home and their children also get affected due to such malicious behavior and it can end drastically. Although there are no separate laws for bullying right now under which we can categorically define bullying as unlawful but still if it crossing the limits, it must be reported to any employment lawyer and he will deal this case under harassment laws too and bring justice to you.

How can we describe harassment?

Harassment can be categorically defined as malicious or contemptuous attitude towards someone or making him do something unlawful and unethical. Harassment is not limited to any specific gender or any specific category, religion or any group of people. But it can be related to age, cast, religion, race, sexual disorientation, disability, genetic disorder, sexual attraction or even cast/creed. And it would be considered as harassment if it falls in any of the following categories. You should discuss it with your near and dear ones but with the one who is trustworthy and if you can’t find any solution, you should contact directly to your sexual harassment lawyer online on any website and describe him the whole situation, and seek his legal help to solve this issue.

What forums can be used for harassment?

It isn’t necessary that you may have to face any kind of harassment face to face with the harasser or you will be bullied in public. Harassment is also done on several others forums like email, messages, letters or even phone calls, so you should be able to identify it. Secondly it may be a one time act like your boss texted you a flirty message and asking for unethical or sexual services just once, or it may consist of a time to time approaches after gap of some days and it may even comprise of a number of episodes of daily texts, phone calls and emails asking for the immoral services. So, all of these should be reported as soon as possible to the concerned authorities.
