Dealing with harassment

It is hard to believe, but there are rules to how you are supposed to be treated at work. There are many approaches one can take, but I prefer knowledge. Knowing the rules that cover you as an employee in dealing with management are necessary. The days of screaming and threats will only earn you the pink slip. The days of fearing management should never have had the opportunity to enter into the conversation. I have been on seven (7) discharges, never actually got walked out the building or even went to panel. I did get paid while serving my suspension. I had the insurance that covers suspensions and discharges.


I’ve had my battles with the company, and at times with my union in ensuring my rights were both honored and respected. The simplest way of dealing with both of them is reading. Learning is the key to ensuring you know your rights and making sure those same right are respected. Below are some of the most common issues that occur and how to deal with them:
