1 Harassment, Fraternization & Hazing

2 Harassment Harassment in a workplace is ANY conduct, which makes another person feel uncomfortable, inadequate, embarrassed or threatened in ANY way. Such conduct must stop and never be repeated when; the victim makes it known to others that the conduct is perceived as OBJECT ABLE.
