All employers have a responsibility towards their employees. Just because the employees get paid, it does not mean that they have to work in a hostile environment. There are many people out there who feel extremely stressed at work because of workplace bullying and harassment, and that in turn affects their personal lives. This has to stop.

That is why I wrote my book titled “How to stand up to workplace bullying and take on an unjust employer”. I wanted to make the point that the process of fighting back was not easy, but it was worth it. Whenever I put in a comment on my Facebook page or on Linkedin, I get comments from both directions. A lot of people support my views and believe in fighting back. But there are also many who seem to believe that it is not useful to fight back – they believe that either you tolerate the mistreatment and keep working in that same place or just quit and take another job.

I do realize that situations are not the same for everyone. For some people there truly isn’t any other alternative other than just tolerating the mistreatment. But I believe that if at all possible, it is important to fight back. Because that is the only way employers will learn that something needs to be done to keep employees satisfied. In my case, I did win a settlement, but more importantly I believe that the organization has learnt that it needed to do more to make sure this kind mistreatment does not occur in the future.
