You may be surprised at the good feelings you receive from helping others. #One of the best ways to lessen holiday depression or grief is by getting your problem out in the open. If there's no one you can talk to about it, then write about it. Put your thoughts and feelings down in a journal. Try sentence completion. For example, "At the holiday season, I feel ." "The worst thing about the holiday is ," or "I wish ." Writing about your feelings can be a great release and a real learning experience. *If your feelings are intense and/or you are having difficulty functioning, consider seeking professional help to deal with the underlying causes of your holiday depression. And last, but certainly not least, take deep breaths and know that in a couple of months all the "fun" will be over for this year. Enjoy what you can, and don't beat yourself up if you can't be jolly. FACTS ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when submission or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual's employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances. Sexual harassment includes, but is not limited to: • The victim as well as the harasser may be a woman or a man. The victim does not have to be of the opposite sex. • The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or a non-employee. • The victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct. • Unlawful sexual harassment may occur without economic injury to or discharge of the victim. • The victim has a responsibility to establish that the harasser's conduct is unwelcome. It is in the victim's best interest to directly inform the harasser that the conduct is unwelcome and must stop. The victim should use any employer complaint mechanism or grievance system available. An employer may be held liable for acts of sexual harassment regardless of whether the employer knew or should have known of their occurrence. When investigating allegations of sexual harassment, EEOC looks at the whole record, the circumstances, such as the nature of the sexual advances, and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred. A determination on the allegations is made from the facts on a case-by-case basis. Prevention is the best tool to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are encouraged to take steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. Employees should be informed of their rights, a complaint or grievance process should be established and immediate and appropriate action should be taken when an employee complains. FILING A CHARGE Charges of sexual harassment may be filed at any field office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Field offices are located in 50 cities throughout the United States and are listed in most local telephone directories under U.S. Government. If you need further information, you may call EEOC toll free on 800-USA-EEOC. EEOC's TDD number (for the hearing impaired) is (202) 634-7057.
