Conversation with Employees

Conversation with the Female Co-worker

Employee: Good morning, Mrs. Goodwill.

Me: Good morning, Kate. Please have a seat. How can I help you?

Employee: Thank you. I’m sorry for dropping by unannounced but I have a pressing matter that I need to discuss with you if you do not mind.

Me: I am always at your service. What is troubling you?

Employee: For a while now, a co-worker has been sexually harassing me repeatedly and I was informed that as the human resource manager, you deal with cases of sexual harassment and employee discrimination among other cases.

Me: That is correct. I handle such cases. If you do not mind me asking, can you describe what this co-worker did to give you the impression of sexual harassment?

Employee: He has been asking me out on dates repeatedly even after telling him that I am not interested.

Me: Would you like me to have a conversation with him before taking this issue any further?

Employee: Yes, please. I do not wish for him to lose his job, just for him to stop harassing me.

Me: Thank you for approaching me with this. I will look into it and give you feedback as soon as possible.

Summary of the Conversation with the Male Co-worker

After calling the male co-worker to my office, I asked him about his awareness of the allegations levelled against him, and he respond to the affirmative. Next, I asked him if he was aware of the provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. He answered to the affirmative as well. I emphasized to him that the Act also guards against sexual harassment in the workplace. In his defense, he argued that he was unaware that asking her co-worker out on a date repeatedly constituted sexual harassment. He went on to say that he would never intentionally harass anyone sexually. He told me that he was insisting on the date based on the assumption that ‘persistence wears out resistance’. I informed him that ignorance will not be tolerated at the company. Finally I urged him to apologize to his co-worker personally, to stop all advances on her with immediate effect, and to avoid approaching her unless it is absolutely necessary. He agreed to all these requirements, and that is when the conversation ended.
