In this post I mentioned briefly the incident about the male member of staff who made an inappropriate comment and I am glad to say that both the National Council on Ageing and the Ministry of Human Development have taken it very seriously.
On Monday I sent a memo to my placement leader and to the other guy’s boss. My placement leader wrote a supporting letter to the Ministry and later on that afternoon I had a meeting with the Ministry’s Chief Executive Officer.
Today the Ministry sent a copy of a letter that was sent to the man who made the comment and based on discussions they had with him (he has not denied the comment but he has denied the fact that it counts as sexual harassement) they have asked him to send me a written apology and have treated the letter to him as a caution and if the incident were to happen again he shall be reprimanded.
I await his apology…in the meantime I shall leave you with the comment he made to me…
” You have very nice boobs”
