According to the case study regarding the Maple Leaf Shoes Ltd. Company, a
female employee named Rosetta was constantly feeling uncomfortable due to the
harassment of her male employees. This case study is, indeed, a case of sexual
harassment and not just a situation of only fun and jokes. In the workforce, sexual
harassment is known as illegal employment discrimination, where actions as simple as
simple teasing are not tolerated, even if it was meant to be a joke. However, in this case,
Rosetta’s male employees constantly joked about her ethnicity and referenced sexual
insults about her personal life, which made her feel upset and helpless, causing her to
resign from her job. Therefore, as long as the negative actions that are being made are
affecting the employee’s work and personal lifestyle, causing them to feel uncomfortable,
then sexual harassment has been done. s
As Rosetta’s friend, and having to see someone being hurt constantly, it is only
right to put the truth out there and do what is right. If I were Eva, I would help Rosetta
talk to her co-workers at her department about the situation and see if they are aware of
the situation and how it made her feel. Since Al feels that it shouldn’t be made into a
huge situation, someone will have to get the word out somehow. The probability of
success of this working out will be a fifty-fifty chance because Rosetta’s co-workers
could either not care about what they’ve done and not want to tell Al to risk being fired,
or they may give Rosetta sympathy and tell Al the truth about what has been going on
