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!
