Hey, Claire, you look sad. What's up?
Guess I am a bit depressed.
Having a bad hair day?
No, that's not it.
Come on. You can confide in me. I know how to keep a secret.
OK... but you really have to keep this to yourself. I don't want to cause trouble.
Wow. Sounds serious!
You know my boss, Kevin?
Sure... I've met him at a couple of company functions.
Well, he keeps commenting on how pretty I am and he frequently touches my shoulders.
He says I look tense and could use a massage.
And this makes you uncomfortable, right?
Yeah! I don't like it. I have a boyfriend and I'm not interested in Kevin at all.
Plus, he's my boss and it's just a weird feeling!
That sounds like sexual harassment to me!
Really? Do you think it's that serious?
The workplace is supposed to be a comfortable place to work in.
You shouldn't have to be looking over your shoulder all day.
It's the responsibility of a boss to make sure your workday is safe and productive.
Well, every time he comes out to speak to me, I worry he's going to do or say something that makes me uncomfortable.
That's sexual harassment and it's a crime!
But overall he is a pretty good boss and most of the people in the office like him.
I don't want to be the one to stir up trouble. Maybe I'm too sensitive.
Sexual harassment is a common problem.
I remember I once had a boss who kept asking me out on a date, even though I was married and wearing my wedding ring!
What did you do about it?
