Congolese lady sacked after reporting white co-worker for sexual harassment in U.K
A Congolese lady who was a victim of sexual harassment in a firm she works with in U.K, took to Twitter to narrate how she was sacked after she reported her white co-worker who was harassing her.
According to @Diamsraven, she was told that something was going to be done about the incident, however she was called to the office few days ago and fired. She further disclosed that the older man who harasses her, had earlier been reported to authorities by two women who also left the job.
Here are tweets from the Congolese lady;
3 weeks ago, I reported a much older co-worker for sexual harassment, was told something was going to be done about it (nothing was done) Today I got called to the office thinking that we were going to discuss the issue, instead i’ve been fired from my post.
Nothing in that meeting addressed anything I reported. Instead they all of a sudden feel that i’m not “right” for the post
I’m so angry. Not because I lost my job but because it took a lot out of me to report this man. I was scared that I would lose my job but I did it anyways knowing his long history with other female colleagues at our post and their similar complaints which has gone unheard
Have also found out the two female colleagues who had reported him had since left the post with no notice whilst I was away.
I have just been informed (with screenshot conversations where he was laughing at the fact that he was already informed of my firing) that the person I had reported was made aware that I would be fired from my post before I even knew anything about it.
I didn’t have much quarrels with my manager but this is highly unprofessional & just further lets me know that I wasn’t fired because I was not right for the job but because she favours a pervert instead
It is sickening to me how another woman (especially a mother) can literally treat another woman like shit for fighting for women’s rights
