What should you do if you feel you are sexually harassed?
  • Do not feel ashamed and blame yourself. Tell the harasser very clearly that you find his behavior offensive.
  • Do not ignore the harassment in the hope that it will stop on its own. The harasser may misinterpret a lack of response as approval of the behavior. Come forward and complain to the INTERNAL COMPLAINT COMMITTEE.
  • Do not hesitate to ask for help. Talk to somebody you trust about the harassment. It will not only give you strength but also help others in similar situations to come forward and complain.
  • Keep a record of all incidents of sexual harassment. If you feel the need to register a formal complaint later this record will be helpful.
