One of my male manager’s behaved differently with me because of my conservative nature. I wasn’t dressing up and behaving as fancy as his requirements were, if you know what I mean. As a result, Im targeted in everything. I'm now fed up of this and want everything to stop. @Careertherapiet

Hi! This is a tough situation. While you are fed up, see if you can take the load of being you and wanting to be like someone else , who is fancy and things like that? It's not to copy but to imitate the characteristics of people who are like that? It's to get put of your comfort zone and see what you can do. Of course you can come being you, anytime you want, that liberty is up to you! Think about this, and get back..idea is not to feel , see how he is doing, but to adapt to the characteristics not dress to show iff etc, but to dress differently may be ? Have an image consultant to see how they can help you...look into it.For success, it may matter...Tc, Preethq

this just happened to me at work, and it left me feeling terrible. My boss was pressuring me to do something that I knew wasn't right, ethically speaking. It was a tough spot to be in. What do you do when you're faced with a situation that challenges your moral code?
Do communicate my dear. Assertive communication is the key here. Do join my live sessions to learn more about assertive communication

hi... you have to communicate assertively with the person who is invading your boundaries. Preserving our self esteem is very essential in any relationship. I give assertiveness training to people who has difficulty communicating their boundaries.

hey. I recently joined a new job and I've already got a situation to deal with. A male colleague keeps hitting on me, and wants to hangout during lunch, how do I avoid him??
Anonymous12d
Make it clear that you are not interested in a romantic or sexual relationship with your colleague. You can say something like, "I value our professional relationship and would like to keep it that way."

Politely decline his invitation by saying something like, "Thank you for the invitation, but I prefer to have lunch on my own today."

Let's say I take a leave of absence to support someone close to me. Is there anything I need to be aware of regarding my job security if I decide to leave the company after using my leave? Knowing the potential consequences would help me make an informed decision.
This depends on what kind of leave you are eligible for. Leave of absence is a little ambiguous. If this is your annual/earned/paid leave you can avail it for any reason and you can come back to work, and then quit. But if it is unpaid leave, then you need clear communication with your line manage about how long this is for. I don’t think you can be terminated if everything is in writing and there is a fixed period and you return after that period is over. If you keep extending then of course at some point the company might start to think of a replacement.

My new company has a cutthroat culture that often prioritizes profit over ethical practices. It makes me uncomfortable, but I also need this job. How can I maintain my integrity in a work environment that challenges it? Maybe talking to a supervisor about ethical concerns or seeking guidance from a professional organization can help navigate the situation. There might also be anonymous reporting channels available.
Hi... I understand your situation... it's difficult to for you to deal this... however, we all need to understand that we have to strike a balance... continue with the work as feeding yourself is necessary and the liabilities have to be met... however when it goes to an extent where the acceptance is going to a level of tolerance then you need to reconsider. I will be better able to guide you if I get more details about your situation.

I think my boss has a crush on me. He has become extremely sweet towards me, more than he is towards anybody else. But my colleagues told me the otherwise that he hates the way In work. Whom should I believe??
Anonymous12d
Maybe he just likes you because you are a good employee, not because he has a crush on you

There is a male coworker who constantly makes unwanted advances and flirtatious comments towards me. He keeps trying to get me to go to lunch with him, despite me turning him down politely numerous times. I'm starting to feel uncomfortable and want to avoid any one-on-one situations with him. What is the best way for me to firmly shut down his advances without creating an awkward workplace environment?
I Would say whatsoever may happen just go and confront him about it, tell him how you feel uncomfortable. If he still continues then you can report it to your HR or some senior.
Na_Dia16d
If you have told him no to do it and he is doing it again, you must complain to higher authorities

I have a coworker who is extremely two-faced towards me. Whenever we interact directly, she's overly nice and friendly to my face. But multiple trusted colleagues have mentioned to me that the moment I'm not around, she routinely talks badly about me and bitches about things I've done or said. This duplicitous behavior is really off-putting. I'm worried about creating unnecessary workplace drama if I call her out directly. What's the best way to approach this situation - should I have an upfront discussion or kill her with kindness in hopes she stops the petty gossiping?
I think try talking to her for sometime. if she is rude or something then ignore her
See here you have heard different things so there are no direct encounters even if you confront she can deny and you will have cold war, what you can do is have acceptance that person doesn’t belong in any of your close knit and keep it as professional as possible
