Dealing with Harassment -- asking for a friend
I have a friend working at a larger tech company and she told me about some issues she's facing dealing with some guy coworkers who basically shamed her for some of her pictures on her instagram, basically insinuating she was a slut for dressing the way she does....Does this happen at any other companies? Personally I can see how this isn't exactly assault, but at the same time it really destroyed her experience working at her company -- she's very professional at work but just likes to have fun on the weekends sometimes. She's considering reporting her coworker's behavior to HR and I support it because I really don't think that type of public shaming is appropriate at work.
What do you all think? Will she face any negative consequences for reporting it? Is it something that can be dealt with if it were to be reported?
