EEEKKK!!! Inappropriate CoWorker

  1. So I work at a pizza store and last week one of my coworkers was giving me a hug and touched my boob. I thought it might have been an accident so i did not think about it to much. Tonight at work he kissed me. I am FREAKED OUT!!!!!!! I do not know what to do.

    This is sexual harrassment (sp?) plain and simple, and it is against the law. I am sorry and angry this happened to you!!!

    I am not smart/experienced enough to know what route to take from here, hopefully someone else does. I just wanted to offer support.

    First of all. TELL HIM TO STOP!!! If you have to work alone with him then discuss it with your boss and tell him/her you are uncomfortable with working with this person!! you do not need to put up with that!!:angryfire

    I agree you have to tell him to stop! Also talk to your manager about it.

    1. You have to let him know that it is unwanted and that if he doesn't stop that you will report him for sexual harassment/assault.
    2. Report him.

    I'm kinda suprised how often this comes up. This has to be the third thread with a smiliar situation. I just can't wrap my head around it... why do so many people think this behavior is okay? It's because of people like him that well-meaning people are getting sued for pats on the back and why teachers nowadays would NEVER even consider hugging one of their students. I remember when I was in grade-school (up until I wasn't cute anymore lol) I loved my teachers and treated them like pseudo-mommies.... now you have teachers running off with their students to Mexico and other things like that.... maybe it happened just as much in the past.... but I dunno... is the world that sexually depraved?

    Tell him that his actions are unwanted and if he continues that you will file charges for harrassment. Start writing letters stating that the breast grab was unwanted and so was the kiss. Send it to him, keeping a copy for yourself. You have to take care of this now, before it escalates.

    Is this a chain of pizza places? If so, you could also send those letters to upper management so they know what is going on in their store.

    if anyone ever touched my boob, my first instinct would be to stomp on their foot, or knee them in their jewels.
    i have very brisk reflexes.

    Tell him to stop, if that doesn't work knee him in the knutz, if that doesn't work call the cops and get a lawyer.

    Oh and get it on camera.

    Sexual harrassment is a crime and you don't have to stand for it.

    Do not put up with it for one second longer. If your immediate boss doesn't take you seriously, take it as far up the chain as you need to, to the CEO if needs be. I'm serious. And we're behind you.

    Absolutely tell him that he is not ever to touch you again or you will report him. It is never ok to be touched inappropriately by anyone and maybe if you take a stand, he'll think twice before doing it to the next person.

    OMG - You need to contact an official regarding sexual horasement at work....first you should talk to the guy and say how off base he is though.

    So I stoped by the shop today and spoke with my manager. He said not to worry that is just how this man is. That he was "trained" by one of the other employies who is supper friendly. He then spoke wth the guy and said there we go. Luckly next time I work he is going to be the supervisor on duty.
