The type of harassment and or discrimination.

Discrimination or regardless of the seriousness of an event, whether it be considered a one-off or prolonged and long classified, it will nevertheless be evaluated as harassment. The continued harassment will erode the capacity and drive of the person or group to sooner or later impact the entire performance of the work performance if left unchecked.

However the absence of any formal or mental problems is not necessarily any indication that harassment or discrimination is not happening. In a lot of cases the person or group being harassed or discriminated against won't complain or report the incident in the belief which they will be considered as wingers or the incident is too little. In most cases the target of the workplace harassment or discrimination is lacking confidence within their own power and has concern with retribution or even worse, being dismissed.
