Q&A: I've been approached inappropriately by a co-worker. What do I do?

Q: Several times I’ve been approached inappropriately by a co-worker. I can’t loose my job but I don’t know how to handle it. Can you help?

A: You won’t lose your job but they may lose their job. You should not allow inappropriate sexual behavior to continue. If they are inappropriately talking and touching you, they will also do that to other people. It should not be allowed in the work place and there are very strict laws regarding this. The first step is to talk with your supervisor. Put in writing, date it, and give specific times and dates on which inappropriate behavior has taken place, as well as what the inappropriate behavior is. This is the responsible thing to do.
