Today I am here to share a story of a friend who is suffering from chronic backstabbing, cruelty, bias, discrimination, mistreatment, misbehavior that one demonstrates, [toxic co-workers] are intolerable to work with or be around for an extended period. In the beginning, I thought she needed to be calm and cooperative with her coworkers. Nonetheless, in such a toxic environment she could not fix up with these and now she is suffering from some chronic ailments, which has been caused to her due to stress and lack of cooperation by her employer and coworkers.

Now, when She has been prescribed complete bed rest by her Doctor, her Supervisor and coworkers keep on calling her to get the work done. Even if itís one or two emails a day, this is not a healthy thing to be done by an employee who is sick. These things were not enough to make her sick, one of her coworkers called her today and told her it would have been better if she has been feeling sick due to COVID-19, and mentally harassed her over the call for her condition and threatened her that due to these she can lose her job.

She was so broken by all this, I just want to ask each one of you today, that arenít we living in a harassment-free nation, where each one of us has a right to raise voice against such incidents, but she is more worried on losing her job. Worse yet, working with a toxic co-worker can negatively impact her personal life, health, and even derail her career if these people allowed to continue their behavior.

So, whatís the best action she can take against such people. Please suggest.

The Aggrieved Woman-Employee, cited-in-the-post, must File her Harassment Complaints before her Employer/Superior and she cay send a Copy of her Complaints to the Internal Committee constituted at her Workplace.
The Aggrieved Woman Complainant shall be given all reasonable opportunities by her Employer and the Internal Committee towards redressal of her Complaints which shall also serve as a Lesson and or a Deterrent for others who are not aware of the consequences of their action at the Workplace and arising out of Employment. Let the Truth be ascertained and the Workplace restored as Safe and Secure Workplace Environment.

Dear colleague,
This is mind blowing case -many getting together to harass a single person. Even superiors also are part of it. Why relationships have so much ruptured and come to this toxic pass. Unless all those ganged up against one colleague are paranoid, it is difficult to figure out why are they behaving like this.
She should fearlessly escalate this matter to higher ups, and apprise them of the goings on and request them to seize with it to avoid serious damage to the well- being of the rest of the staff.

I donít think any of the above will help her because thatís a start up
Company and they donít have any internal committee. also, the owner herself is a micromanager she is a part of all this chaos, I guess.

Dear madam,
Your post does not convey that it is the case of sexual harassment at workplace as some are led to believe. The reference,
therefore , to Internal committee is out of place.
The solution possibly lies in making enough noises against those who are involved in inflicting mental harassment either by the lady herself or someone capable of taking up her cause, may be some whistle blower.
