PLANS & PRICING
Your colleague has trusted you with their story. It’s extremely important that you are sensitive and handle the matter delicately.
Sensitivity- If you decide to bring it up, make sure you have their explicit consent. You may just be trying to help but it is their story to tell, when they feel they are ready.
Read up on Company Policy- Your company would have provisions for cases like these. Read the policy and understand what they define as harassment and what can be done.
Legal aid- Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013, provides protection to women against workplace harassment. Read up on the laws and educate yourself about the protection and rights of the victim.
Finally, know that these are just the available options. The final decision of what to do lies with the person who has experienced it first hand. Be sure to let them know of your support.
