Tag Archives: Not Taking the Sexual Harrassment Claims Seriously Enough

The Company Didn’t Do Anything to Check Out the Claims of Sexual Harassment by the Workers, It Was Fined

The PRICE you pay, for IGNORING!!!  From the Newspapers, translated, and, feel free to file this one under, IGNORANCES if you want to, translated…

A certain high-tech company awhile ago sent its female employee abroad to the U.S. and she was harassed by the local branch’s workers, and, although the company had initiated the investigations, but they’d kicked the issue around, the Department of Labor believed, that the person in charge of the company didn’t do enough to take care of its employees, mandated that the company pay a $150,000N.T. fine.

The Department of Labor pointed out, that the former sale’s department manager, “Huei”, was sent to the branch company in the U.S. to work for six months, and, she was harassed by sexual connotations of the senior engineer of the subsidiary company, and because he’d talked about her face, her figure, and asked if she were willing “to carry his child”?, and had even took her underwear too, it’d troubled her son.

But Huei considered, that the man was a senior engineer, so she didn’t file a complaint about him, and after she’d quitted the job, she’d still gotten harassed by him endlessly, she finally couldn’t take it, and reported it to the primary company about it, without knowing, that although the company had initiated the investigation processes, but because the one who’d sexually harassed her was from a subsidiary company abroad, they’d suggested that, “she should file a complaint with the company abroad about it”, and ruled the case as a “low-profile sexual harassment”, decided to not pursue the case further, that, was why the woman decided to file a complaint toward the city government.

The Hsinbei employment discrimination committee believed, that although the employer did set up rules against sexual harassment, but they’d failed to take up the responsibilities, get to the bottom of the truth, nor did they consider Huei’s feeling, show her care and concern, or even, mentioned a way of resolving the issues, that the company had violated the laws against gender equality in the workforce, and the hi-tech company is a corporation that’s on the stock markets, with over two hundred employees, and, so, the company was mandated to pay a heavy fine of $150,000N.T.

And this ought to be a WARNING for all of you, in charge of a company, because there WILL be cases like this, and, if you don’t take your employees’ claims seriously, you WILL get SUED, and, in this case, the company didn’t do enough, and, the companies gave the woman a run-around, which was what angered her to SUE them!

“I Was Touched Inappropriately by Someone!”, the Police Don’t Take These Claims Seriously Enough…

Violence toward women, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The sexual harassment of Wei-Ting Chen had become a chain reaction, actually a lot of ladies had similar experiences, but most of them kept silent, and in the end, the experiences of them getting sexually harassed became a dark cloud that they live under for the duration of their lives.

This experience is very uncomfortable and you can NEVER forget it.

As I was in high school, on the busses, someone got close to me, and touched my buttocks, that, was the very first time something like that had happened to me, I was too shy to make a sound, and, the psycho got off the bus; another time was when I was walking on the roads in the early evenings, and, a motorist came towards me on his motorcycle and attacked my breast, and, in the shocking feelings, the motorist was already gone.

Later on, for several years on end, whenever I’d walked on the streets or taken the busses alone, I’d be overcome with fear, I’d had to keep looking behind me, and this sort of an invisible pressures kept pounding down on me, and I’d even started asking myself, “What, did I do wrong?”

Later on, as I rode the MRT, this fear grew and grew.  Every time when we go to and get off of work, is when those PSYCHOTIC losers try to find their next victims.

Once, I was wearing a skirt as I rode down the escalator, I kinda felt that someone had touched the back of my calves, and back then, I’d thought, that it was inevitable that in a crowded situation, but, as I’d turned my head around, I saw but one man behind me, standing close, behind my heels; then, I was touched once more, and I’d turned around, and there was just me and him riding on the escalators, so I’d called, “photographing!  You were trying to see my underpants!”

The wolf was caught in the act, he ran fast, but, was blocked by the transferring crowd in the MRT, I’d called out for help from the station police.

I’d told the police, “he was taking pictures of underneath my skirt!”  the officer asked the suspect, “Did you do it?”, but this psycho said as if nothing had happened, “No I wasn’t, deleted it all!”

I was so furious, I didn’t know where my courage came from, but I’d grabbed his phone from him, to prove, that he was lying.  In the end, with the mediation of the officers and attorneys, we’d settled, but I’m really afraid, of meeting up with him on the streets now, and fearing that the man would use the information that his attorney received about me, to harass me, and I’d walked on eggshells for one to two years afterwards.

Four years ago, while I was riding from Guting to Dingxi Station, I’d felt, that someone was touching my waist, and slowly, the man’s hands slid to my buttocks, then, the door of the MRT trains opened up, and I turned around, saw a middle-aged “wolf”.

He was shorter than I was, I grabbed his collar, called out, “help me catch a sexual predator, don’t let him escape!”, and, a lot of people who was witnessing this raucous just ran and hid.

Later on, a kind man waited with me for the MRT police officers to come take my statements, at first, he thought it was a “lover’s quarrel”.  I’d waited for about twenty minutes, the MRT police officers finally showed up, and they still didn’t take this matter seriously enough, they’d even set up a small room for us, wanted us to talk of the settlements.

I was totally unwilling, but the officer said that there was glass window from the room that he could monitor the goings on inside from the outside.

Later on, the “wolf” finally admitted to touching my buttocks, and he’d gotten down on his knees and begged, “I have family, children too, if I get sent to jail, I couldn’t work, and couldn’t provide for my family anymore!”

I thought that it was just an excuse, but, when he’d lifted his head, his forehead was covered with blood, and that was enough, to soften me down, in the end, I didn’t report it, I truly hope, that he’d learned his lessons.

Later on, as I recalled these sexual harassments, I’d felt, that “the only way to stop these bad actions is by getting tougher myself”.

The atmosphere of the society is all about “keeping things hushed up”, but, these “wolves” are already addicted to sexual harassments, and, a lot of them have the balls to commit the crimes, but not the balls to own up to what they’d done; if the party being harassed isn’t tough, actually, it’s feeding to the “wolves” bad behaviors.

Ladies, all we can do, is to put our armors on, and stand UP against these men, so, the justice system can do right by us!

This, is one woman’s experience, and, it’s really bad, how the society IS feeding to these M***ER F***ERS’ bad behaviors, because the cops are not taking this matter seriously enough, which gives those predators more excuse to commit these sexual assaults, and, each and every time something like this is done, the victims still suffered endlessly.
